Blue Tomato (eww...that sounds icky)
That blob is all I've got so far. I think I knit much slower than the rest of you! This "Tomato" is CottonEase in the "lake" colorway. I'm not sure how well it's going yet as this is my first sweater ever. I think my gauge is way off. Initially (in the geeky thing) it was 21 stitches per 4 inches (and 30 rows) with size 7 needles. So I went up a size - in both needles and size I was knitting - because I wanted slightly tighter fabric. But then when I started, my gauge was *looser* than it should've been. Huh. Well, we'll see how it goes - I'm back to knitting tight on size 7 circs. I'm expecting this to be a learning experience!
