Yes indeed, pretty boring that is. Forty-two inches of stockinette in the round.
Go check out Anne at KnitSpot for some excitement. She's having a blogiversary party and a contest. I've offered up a Fiber Fish mitten pattern and a ball of Trekking XXL as one of the prizes. Anne is an amazing knitter and writes some very pretty patterns. Her spinning is pretty too.
So go say "Hi" to Anne. Tell her Laurie sent you.
