WIP: Dragonflies

I'm in the unusual position of knitting-monogamy right now. One project on the needles! (That is going to change by tonight, though.)

Here is a progress photo of my Dragonflies sweater.

It's taking forever because I'm really slow at lace. Also long torso is long, so I think I've completed just over half of the body. Since I still can't manage the lace while out talking to people, (though it is getting easier), I started on one of the sleeves during knitting group. Judging from how the upper arm fits now, I think I will decrease more quickly for a while for a snugger fit.

In other news, summer arrived in Scotland, and though it has cooled down again a bit, it's still rather pleasant outside. I'm enjoying open windows and leaving the house without a cardigan.

Also, in case anyone wondered whatever happened to my Stash Match project, just wanted to say I'm still working on it. My indecision is my worst enemy, plus I may or may not have increased my stash since blog week, which means more skeins to allocate. Oh dear. It'll get there!

  6. Wow. What a project! Love how you live in Scotland. My daughter's piano teacher is from there and she is fabulous and cute with the lilt in her voice.

    1. Sadly, I have no cute accent. Generic Canadian accent here!
