Last night I started the smocking part of Coraline's yoke. I've never done a knitted smocking stitch so it was all very new and exciting. I've only worked one repeat so far because it's not a particularly fast stitch to work, but I think I'll get faster with a little more practice. It's not difficult to do (assuming I'm doing it correctly), but it's very different from anything I've done before. You'll probably see Coraline again tomorrow, because I'd really like to get going on her - I can see the finish line on this cardigan and now that the temperature has started dropping around here (we're only in the mid 80's for highs right now - break out the mittens!), I can actually see myself wearing a cardigan again soon.
