Somewhere in the Middle

I've been trying really hard to work on my projects this week. Unfortunately, it's been another crazy week at work, compounded by a congested and cranky toddler, so finding the time has been difficult. I've been able to squeeze in a little time here and there, so my projects are moving forward albeit at a slow pace.

My cowl is almost halfway done; I'm now into the second/middle ruche (though just barely).

As you can see, I've joined the second skein of yarn, and I've discovered that this yarn felts quite nicely in a spit splice. These ruche rounds are really long -- it took me all of my lunch break to do about 3/4 of the increase round and part of a plain knit round -- but the nice thing is that it's very mindless knitting. I can easily fit in a round or two here and there.

What I'm really trying to focus on, however, is my Chandail. I worked on it at knit night last night and got a couple of inches done at least. I'm ready to cross my cables again on my next row.

This seems like it's taking a while, but I have to keep reminding myself that I'm working on the entire body right now, so when I finish it, I'll be done with a good portion of the sweater already. My goal is to try to get this done by the end of the month in order to qualify for the knitalong (and have at least a couple of chances to wear it before it's too warm). I have another sweater's worth of yarn in the closet patiently waiting for me when this is done, so it's time to get the needles moving!


  1. I love that green yarn! Gorgeous!

    And I cannot wait to see your sweater completed. It's a beautiful pattern!

  2. I think they both look gorgeous!! I bet you will finish your sweater by the end of the month with time to spare =D
