6" done, 9" to go!

Yep...that's for my Tempting II. I've done 6" of ribbing. Now I only have 9" left. I'm almost halfway! :) I think it's turning out pretty good, if I do say so myself. :) Though I will definitely be adding a lifeline when I get to the collar. I would hate to mess up the collar and rip back to far! This project is perfect for taking places. I took it to a lecture the other day (The zoo hosts lectures throughout the year on various subjects. This last one was on Madagascar and was presented by our Conservation Director, Bill Konstant. Very nice guy, very knowledgeable on Lemurs.)

Anyways...I took it there and spent a very relaxing hour learning about Madagascar (it's wildlife, plant life, people, etc) and knitting away on my Tempting II. :) The ribbing is perfect for this because I don't have to pay a lot of attention to a pattern. I think next I'll take it to a movie (still need to see Pirates of the Carribbean 2!). Here's a couple of pictures of it so far:

What's a life line??

I'm less than an inch from the neckline, and I'm anxious to get to it given everyone's comments! Anything I can do to minimize ripping would be wonderful.

what I consider a life line to be is a strand of yarn run through all the stitches in the row. That way, if you have to rip out, it will only rip out to the stitches that have the yarn in them. It helps reduce the chances of losing stitches and having to rip out further than you intended (at least, for me it does). When you're done with the project, you just pull the life line out and you're done. :)
