I've finished the second section of my Color Affection! Next I get to add the third color to the stripes and start short rows - so exciting! Someone on Ravelry who is better at the math than I am figured out how much each section represented of the total (I think the total stitches). Anyway, apparently I am 37% of the way through at this point. So I guess I shouldn't have any trouble getting this finished by June 27 at the rate I'm knitting. Of course, on Friday, I start my June Knit Something of the Month project too and it has to be finished by the end of June as well.
I'm glad to hear that so many of you also enjoy garter stitch and it's not just me. It reminds me of oatmeal for some reason (possibly the texture) - it's simple but it gets the job done and you can always switch it up to make it more interesting. And now I want a bowl of oatmeal!
