Progress has been pretty slow on this sweater. It’s not that I haven’t been doing much knitting. I have. I have stuff from Ikea still in pieces and various boxes with only two or three things left inside that I’ve been avoiding. Knitting is a great procrastination tool if you’re not diligent. So where is all of the progress if I’ve been knitting a lot? Well, I can’t show you. I’ve been working on a secret project on the side, neglecting this poor sweater.
Do you ever pity your neglected projects? I feel guilty when I go too long without working on them. I felt sorry for the sweater so I picked it up yesterday, put on Supernatural (My current TV series to watch through – I’m on season 4), and got to work. The nice thing about redoing a project is that you can fix things you weren’t happy about before. In this case I got the opportunity to make my colorwork a little tidier when I got to those rows on the back. I tend to leave my floats too loose which isn’t a problem when you’re working with sticky wool, but it makes for uneven stitches when you’re working with a smoother wool like Quince & Co. Chickadee.
