Not so fast

I got all the knuckle-busting stranded knitting finished, and then, presented with the lining, foolishly thought, Now all I have to do is knit 96 rows in plain stockinette and I'll be done! That shouldn't take very long. Ha! Hubris. Four hours later, this is where we're at. What I forgot to take into account is that 96 rows in laceweight yarn on US 3 needles is going to take awhile.

  9. This will be an heirloom sweater to be treasured and passed down. Just keep repeating that over and over as you knit.

  12. I could never have that kind of patience. I don't even buy yarn that's lighter than worsted weight πŸ˜‰
