Lots of progress since yesterday. I had to move from the 32 inch/81 cm long needle (Susan Bates with metal needles) to the 60 inch/150 cm long needle (addi Turbo). I figure I have over 400 stitches now after starting with a mere 4.
Its a lot of fun working with the different yarns, but some of them are kinda hard to see so I decided that I will use them only on the alternate rows where I am straight knitting, no increases nor decreases.
Now measures about 18 inches from the centre out along one of the points.
