The doc is very pleased with the progress I'm making. He apparently believes in his technique-- I caught him napping on one of the stretching tables on his lunch hour.

I finished the intarsia egg, and am currently prepping it for grafting. Lucy Neatby teaches a grafting technique that involves knitting several rows in waste yarn, beyond the area to be grafted. Instead of having to kitchener loose, live stitches, and deal with the risk of dropping them or stitching them wrong, you have the stitches held in place by an intact piece of fabric. It's easy to see where they are, and how they should be stitched.

Onward and upward.
