Eiffel, an update

I did fine at the LYS yesturday with my back until lunchtime. I sat in a low-backed chair to eat, and was in pain the rest of the day. The story is on my blog at

LYS didn't have the size of metal dbl pts that I needed to be able to do both sleeves seperately at the same time. So Fran, LYS owner, loaned a set and a half (7) dbl pts in size 6 so that I could do the sleeves at the same time. I have about 5 or so inches done on both sleeves now. (I work one pattern repeat on sleeve one, then work that repeat on sleeve two, and so on.) This keeps the tension about the same at about the same place on each sleeve, a real problem for me when I do the sleeves one at a time.

I wanted to remind y'all to check the size of your needles with a sizer. The set of size 6 dbl pts that I had was a bit odd, I noticed. So Fran and I checked them yesturday. They were all 4 from the same packaged set, but three of them sized properly at size 6 and one sized at a size 5 or 5.5! So no matter what size they are labeled to be, double check them with a sizer please.

Thanks for the tip. I am sorry to hear that your back is still bothering you. I hope it gets better soon. I can't wait to see your Eiffel!
