For The Love Of All Things Woolly, Give Me Small Balls!!!

I'm sure it has escaped no one's notice that the totals on the side of the screen haven't moved in a while. There has been knitting--lots of knitting, in fact--but do you know that dream where you're running & running & running and never get anywhere? I am stuck in the knitting equivalent. Oh sure, it looks totally innocent, but one single skein of this fingering weight--yep, fingering weight--yarn weighs 170 grams. More than 3 times the normal ball of yarn,which takes long enough. Add in the fact that I'm using 2 balls and alternating rows with the darn things, I have slogged through two inches of orange, and now that we've had two days in a row of spring I'm thinking longingly of cotton...........I think I might be starting to lose my knitting grip......


Wait, is that neon pink fluffy Fun Fur I see...........

It takes mental as well as physical stamina to complete a marathon, and it looks like you're right at mile 17- doing well and over halfway, but it doesn't feel like it! (been there, done that. I wanted a bed at mile 19...) So hang on in there. The pink fluff isn't worth it.

Think of how great that finished sweater will look!! I am also knitting in thin yarn on TWO projects. Must measure frequently to prove progress...

Stick with it, you'll get there. The jumper is really looking lovely.

I vote that the Kauni balls count as 4 instead of two. It's the least the cardigan can do for you!
