Knitting Olympics Update 2 and Love

Happily, I am moving along very well with my Knitting Olympics project Hey Teach.  Last night I finished up the back and left front and seamed them together using the invisible 3-needle bind off (sometimes called Japanese 3-needle bind off, I think).

Hey Teach - February 20th Progress

I have a 6th ball of yarn on the way to me, but I’m pretty sure now I’m not going to need it, even though I’ve lengthened the cardigan by a little more than 2″.  I suppose it is much better to know I will have extra than to worry about running out at the end.

And speaking of the yarn, I really like the 2nd Time Cotton I am using.  It is from Knit One Crochet Too, and is a 75% cotton/25% acrylic blend that comes from recycled sources.  I think possibly leftovers from commercial knitware manufacturers.  It is very soft and has a nice drape.  The only issue I am having is that the off-white ply in my colourway sometimes has a wee bit of fluff stuck in it.  It is easy to tease out, though, and is none the worse for wear afterwards.  I do think that this is a yarn I would knit with again.

I also finished up the Love panel of Sewing Seeds last week.  It is lovely, and I am really looking forward to getting back to work on it once Hey Teach is done.

Out of curosity, does anyone know of any cross stitch-related iPhone/iPod apps?  I’ve found several great knitting ones, but nothing for cross stitch.
