I worked on it all day yesterday and finished the front yoke. Today I worked on it again, all day and got this far.
Though it doesn't look like it over on the far side by the needles, I have finished the decreases and am just knitting a straight tube. Not too far to go on sleeve number two, but I think I am done on it for today.
It isn't really fiddly but there is a lot of turning of the project on very short rows and that just seems to suck the life out of a day. All those turns accumulate into a lot of time not knitting.
I am sprinting to the end now though. I have the entire body to knit but that is a quick pickup and knit me a tube and then add a navy garter stitch bottom. I see the end but still...
Its feels like it is taking me a long time.
As consolation, I am knitting on the Wool Peddlers shawl. That just sings along. Its as fine a combination of yarn and needles as ever was. And after a very few rows, you can see the hole forming in the ball and it just stands. Its most rewarding because it takes very little knitting to make a large hole. Reward for lots of turns.
Isn't it funny how perception affects what we are doing?
