Work In Progress Details

So close, yet so far

Why can’t the world stop for more knitting time?

Oh man, I’ve hit that point on my Telegramme cardigan where I’m so close I can taste it! Because I track in Excel, I know I’ve knit 94.8% of stitches. I also know that on days I can sit and knit for an extended period of time, I can get 2% done. So you’d think I’d be done in about 3 days, right? I mean, just look how close I am!!

But here’s my current problem- I don’t know WHEN I’ll be able to get that last 5.2% done! Tonight I’m going to see the musical Anastasia, tomorrow I have voice lessons and choir practice, and then Thursday night my sister is staying with me, we’re going to NYC Friday morning and will be there until Saturday afternoon. This isn’t really a travel project, even though I don’t need to be staring at a pattern, it doesn’t really fit in bags I plan to take to these places.

Ugh, why doesn’t the world stop for knitting time?! 😂 I’ll finish off this complaining post by sharing some in progress photos, cause man this thing will be so beautiful once completed.

  1. This is beautiful! The colou is just lovely.
    Two questions – what is the name of your kitty and which voice do you sing in the choire?

    • Thanks! Those are great questions 😊
      The cat’s name is Angel and I sing alto in choir!

      • Thank you so much for answering so quickly! Hi Angel! (I sing alto as well, it’s the best!! I haven’t sung in a choir in ages, but I’d love to do that again one day)

      • Aw nice! I have sung in my church choir and occasionally the choir at my work- it’s definitely awesome to make music with people

  2. I love that you track in excel. You are a girl after my own heart.

  3. It is looking great! Beautiful stitching and beautiful yarn! Love your Excel chart 🙂

  4. Gorgeous colours… we all need more knitting time.
