I worked on Shedir a bit more at knitting group yesterday. The yarn continues to be a dream to work with, and the cables galore keep you interested and focused. But I have to tell ya, when you get just a little bit tired, it becomes a real b*tch! I wanted to keep going, but my mind was saying, “unh-unh!” The good thing about cables is that your errors really show, so if you’re checking your work regularly, you can spot them and fix them. The bad thing about cables is that your errors really show, and you it’s harder to just let that little mistake go. Here’s her progress as of yesterday afternoon.
While I’m in full disclosure mode, here’s the little bit of Branching Out I have done. Not much done, as you can see in the before and after photos. Sigh!
I still have my backlog of holiday knitting to finish up. Gah! The yarn arrived yesterday to finish my sister’s holiday gift, so that’ll be next up after Shedir is finished. After that, I hope to whip out the hat for my brother’s domus largus, as long as I get his head measurement. After that, I will officially be done with my holiday knitting, and left with the less-pressured-gift-knitting-for-people-who-aren’t-expecting-gifts-but-I-want-to-make-them-anyway.
Have a great rest of the week!
