I've got the cotton one started and about 2 inches done. I picked up spice today for the bulky. So, I'm doing white for the cotton and spice for the wool. Just an FYI. I'm using size 5 needles. What size needles are you all using? Interesting to know whats being used by the rest of you. I think I CO 46 stitches.

So, what patterns are you all doing? For the white I'm just doing a RT for all knit stitches and purlling across the back, with a garter edging. It looks pretty so far. I keep thinking of other things I can use that pattern for. The LTK apron top comes to mind, I could easily see adding that texture to that top and WOW it would look cute!

Okay, I'm slow -- RT? I haven't picked up any cotton yet, but I'm 20 rows into the wool-ease & that's 1/2 way done! I cast on 32 sts.

RT- Right twist. You knit two together but leave on needle, then knit the first stich. It gives it a twist (think MINI cable!)then if you did it on the purl side you'd have a left twist.

I originally learned RT in the seduction sock pattern, but I've since seen it in several places. I'm about to post a picture once I get it uploaded.
