Okay...now I promise that I have knitted each and every 70 minute round train commute since that date plus a couple of hours in front of the tv last night and...
...I am still only past the intro rounds and 25.5 rows into a 57 row chart.
Basically, it's taking me about 35mins to do 1.5 rounds. Good grief.
That said, I am really enjoying working it - I love how the overall piece is revealing itself and the stitches work together to create the pattern. What I am loving a little less is that it has become very clear to me that my tension is a lot tighter on circular needles than it is on straight needles.
Visibly so, in fact. I have not ripped back because by the time I had worked enough to spot it, I could not face it. So I will just have to see how it all looks when I have finished. Ho hum. Learning note to self: go up at least .5mm on circular needle size when tackling a project that combines straights and circulars.
I haven't posted any pictures of progress because I was convinced that I would whip quickly enough through this last bit to be able to show the whole thing finished.
Hmm, not so - I should have known better! So I promise that I will try to find time* to take some photos in the next few days for you to see what I am up to!
~*~*~*~Notes: it is the GB Open for my sport this month. Time is very scarce for anything other than breathing, working and competing - as a result, things on my blog are likely to be a bit slow until the end of July!
