Training Is Going Well

On the left we have two balls of yarn, the larger one 200 yards and 99g, the smaller one 180 yards and 62g. The darker is a bit heavier in weight, but that's ok, because it's the main color. I think I'll use the technique in the new Vogue Knitting because then it's ok for either color to show through when I get to the color work part.

On the right we have a swatch. It seems that increasing 10 stitches every other row will give me a relatively flat top. However, in order to accurately monitor the progress I need to have a total of six needles, and I only have 5 (and one of them is bendy plastic, while the rest are birch). Oh well, I'll just have to buy more. Darn. What a pity, having to buy new knitting stuff. I just hate that, don't you?
