I have also made some forward progress on Weston's gansey. I am about to join the welts and start working in the round. The other day Sawyer was helping me vacuum and I heard a noise. I asked him to shut off the vacuum and came to investigate. What I found was not pretty. My knitting had been left on the floor and got sucked into the rollers.
My new addi sock rocket needle was shaped like a hook! Sawyer was upset and thought he was in trouble. I assured him he did nothing wrong and it was my own fault for leaving my things out. It also proved a good lesson for why things shouldn't be left on the floor. I was able to get a new needle from my LYS that night and got everything fixed.
Hopefully I continue to make progress and can remember to put my things away!
