kiri: the great slooowdown

I’ve hit 13 pattern repeats done, and now a single row of Kiri is taking what feels like an eternity. It’s not that I’m moving any slower, it’s just that my progress appears to be so much slower! Just . . . two . . . more . . . repeats!!! I can do it! I haven’t had the concentration to count all the stitches in a single row, or even to time it. I think in some way that I’m afraid to count and find out just how many are there–I don’t want to know!

A special note to Kara, my new reader who’s also a new knitter: Welcome to the world of knitting! I hope you start a blog so that we can all see your progress from novice to expert. I get so much enjoyment out of knitting, I’m always thrilled when people learn. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the kind words! I finished up a scarf for my mom last night, and cast on for “Tempting” from Knitty this morning – it’s addicting.

    Hopefully a blog will sprout up in the coming weeks. I’ll let you know if it does!

    Ms. EP told me you were knitting a shawl for the wedding. I’m knitting one too! Mine is a silvery-gray thing, and I’m improvising the pattern. Yours is certainly more professional-looking than mine, which (though very pretty) is unlikely to match the black of my dress AND is likely to shed little fibers onto anything it touches…. But it’s a fun project. If only I had a digital camera, I’d send you pictures of the shawl and the new hat. Oh, technology. When will I catch up?

    You are so speedy with the knitting! What’s your plan for the bind-off this time around?

    Did I already ask you about the measurements for your Sunrise Circle? I am curious how big each of your fronts were and the length of your front side seam. Those measurements aren’t given on the schematic so I don’t know if I am on target or not.
