Yesterday evening, I arrived at the split for the neck on the front of the Borscht Tee. It won't be long now and I'll be able to start the sleeves.
Yesterday, at lunch, a co-worker (who is also in my knitting group) and I met with three other co-workers for what ended up being a short knitting class. Two of them already know how to crochet, but all three of them wanted to learn to knit. I wasn't quite prepared for teaching three ladies to knit. A was quite a bit of help. We're going to try it again next week.
I'm also working on a black sock. I don't know if I've mentioned that here yet. I'm thinking about looking for some sock yarn to match the Borscht Tee -- because I like to match my shirts and socks.

Here it is: the finished back of the Borscht Tee. On the front, I only have a few more rows and then I can do the garter band which transitions to the pattern for the top part. I'm pleased with the fabric that the Love It yarn is making.
I typically have more than one knitting project that I'm working on. At KIP this morning, I was asked what else I'm working on and I had to say that this Tee is it right now. SO, I decided to cast on for something else. I got out the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in blue that was given to me and this pattern .
Most of the time on Saturday I go to Panera in the morning and then head over to Twist for a couple of hours. Today I thought I would do something different. Instead of going to Twist this morning, I'm going this evening for SNB. I'm hoping to see some knitters I don't usually get to see.
