This'll make your eyes bleed... Or mine.

I've been working on that Kaffe Fassett wool cardigan. It's nearly finished and I'm currently trying to squeeze a toque out of the leftovers.  While I was doing the ribbing along the bottom edge I thought I should take a picture to share with the world just how small the stitches and needles are.  It's a little blurry because my camera has a hard time focusing on tiny things up close but this will give you a good idea why my eyes are red and sore today.  All of my knitted items are hand knit, English style.  I tried Continental once but it's just not my style I guess :) It's really fast but I don't get the same smooth even tension I do the English way. It takes me over a week to complete 1 cardigan but it's so worth it.
