Making progress

Photobucket

The great thing about colourwork is being able to see progress with every row. Each row builds upon the previous, adding to a developing picture.

Right now, I find this progress very rewarding. I know with certainty that each line of the chart brings me closer to finishing a pair of mittens. When I finish them, I will have a tangible product representative of my efforts. (And warm hands next winter).

It's helpful to have a rewarding project on the go when other things seem like excercises in futility. I wish I could believe that each CV I distribute and each job application I submit brings me closer to getting a job, but I have yet to see the evidence. Haha. In the mean time, I have plenty of time to knit, I suppose.

  4. Love the photos, they are going to look really good when finished!
    Also good luck on the job front! It sucks sending out lots of cv's and getting nowhere! Fingers crossed!

  5. Wow, the progression shots really lay your point home. I'm jealous of your colorwork. I can only do mosaic, but you're doing a sort of faux-isle, aren't you?
