Progress Report: January Aran
February 4, 2012 § 2 Comments
Here is an admission. I haven’t shown much of my January Aran sweater, because, frankly, there hasn’t been too much to show. I am knitting at what is, for me, a positively glacial pace. I have just about 12″ to show for a month of work.
There are so many other irons in the fire– both knitting-related and not– that I haven’t found the time to devote to this.
I’m still pleased with it, of course. It’s just so much easier to crank away at a project when the pattern’s laid out in front of you, instead of waiting to be invented.
It doesn’t help that the weather’s so wretchedly warm, and that I recently re-inherited about 10 of my old machine-knit sweaters from middle and high school (hand-me-back-ups, I guess they are). I’m certainly not motivated to want another sweater, beautiful and handmade or not.
I haven’t given up yet. But this one’s definitely on the back burner, and may very well spend most of the spring there.
