Now this is what I call progress...
Excite has me so, well, excited about knitting, that I couldn't wait to cast on and get started. And I stayed up past my bedtime, happily knitting away. It feels so good to be knitting with the big needles again, and feeling like I am actually getting somewhere with my knitting. In fact, I've got about 12cm done already -- I'm almost halfway up to the shoulder shaping!
The cotton tape is very soft, and moves easily on the needles. It drapes really nicely, and I had no problem getting the gauge recommended. It seems to twist sometimes, but I suspect that has more to do with me constantly turning my work in the same direction between rows.
