When I got home from work yesterday, all I had was some ribbing. After an evening in front of the TV, and a morning at a knitting group, I have turned the heel of my first Mayday. I'm hoping that the Bank Holiday means that I can do lots more knitting. :)
I'm using Trekking XXL on 2.5mm bamboo needles, and really pleased with the way that it's turned out - especially as I've not worked from a chart before.
