End of first skein of yarn - c. 276 yards knit so far.

Stornoway Sunday progress - first skein finished and second skein started. This is definitely going to be a long term project - the tight gauge is hard on my hands after a while. But it's definitely going to be a wonderful sweater when it's finally done.

This is what we gathered today at knitting, I'm going to package it up and send it to Staten Island, NY for knitters who were slammed by Sandy. They can knit for themselves and their families while they begin to rebuild their lives. It would be wonderful if knitters all over the country did this!
