Slow progress now


Ester progress

Has anyone else noticed that although the number of stitches has now effectively tripled (almost), it seems to take five times as long to do a single row?
On the other hand, I'm finding this project to be nice mindless knitting - with enough interesting-ness to stop it from being mind-numbing. Excellent for teaming with a spot of TV watching in the evening and as a respite from the really fiddly socks that I'm also wrestling with.

Oh Paisley! She looks so fantastic. That subtle banding of color is getting better and better.

Each row does take SO much longer now but I, too, find that I can watch a subtitled film and still keep track.

And you're right - I've done away with the stitch markers and am happily knitting away :-)

I LOVE it! I KNOW, it's so slow. Now when I tell my hubby "just let me finish this row, then I'll make dinner", I make dinner 30 mins. later, it seems!

Yeah, it's slow. It makes me realize how important it is to really love the yarn you've chosen. Thankfully I do. I find that unlike most projects, I look forward to the wrong side more than the right side. It goes so much more quickly
