Gail has been putting up loads of helpful info!
I'm almost up to the bit where I can remove the sleeves. Then I can try it on, OOH!
Also, row 25 was a bit tricky where you cast on 10 stitches at the start and end of the row.
Here is what I think I figured out -please tell me if I'm right! (lol):
The instructions are to break the yarn, and cast on 10 stitches on the right needle.
Now, there are cast-ons where you use the right needle (such as long-tail and backward-loop), but I don't know them and wanted to use knitting-on for both sides. Knitting-on uses the left needle.
Row 25 is a purl (wrong side) row. I cut the yarn as instructed. But then I turned the work back to the right side. I cast on 10 stitches with new yarn, on the left needle, using 'knitting on'.

Then at the end of the row, I turned the work again and cast on 10 more stitches with knitting on. Then on to the next row! Am I doing it right?
So guys, please give me your feedback on my knitting questions! :)
Oh, and about the Taffy- I wanted to join the Colette Handbook Sew-along, so I tried to make a Taffy in time for the deadline. And failed! Woo! But I would have finished it if it wasn't for that darn bias tape...They didn't have the right stuff in the store!
Here is a picture of my first test garment instead (I actually made two).

Gosh, I feel like I've been a bit of a boring blogger lately. Not many finished projects. Having a blog sometimes feels like extra pressure to create cool things, you know? But there's no point in rushing. I'll just keep plugging along!
