Fast as fast can be

So last Thursday I cast on for the Back to School U-Neck (or on Ravelry) I’ve wanted to make for awhile:
Back to School U-Neck

Super-fast knit! I’m already to the waffle stitch part!

And it’s not like I’ve been doing nothing but work on this… To sum up or weekend: furniture shop, clear out the yard for winter, housewarming party, hangover, Panini’s for the big game (serious bummer right there - good thing my fantasy team won - that takes the edge off of it a little bit), grandparents for Sunday dinner. It was super-busy with not much of the knitting.

And yet somehow I’m already halfway done:

I think this proves that if I concentrate on one project and don’t let the malabrigio distract me I can make noticeable progress. Funny that.

Anyways now that I’ve said it’s a quick knit I have a feeling the rest of it is going to take for-ev-er… especially since I plan on adding short row bust shaping in addition to the vertical darts in the front. I have no idea how this is going to work with the waffle pattern but can’t be that hard to work around b/c 2 of the 3 rows are just knit. There’s got to be a way to do it…

Think there is any chance of me finishing by Thanksgiving?

  2. LOL - I don't necessarily miss being a browns fan! Though I still have to be one by birthright and/or default. That said, it's not like the Broncos are doing all that great either!

    I find the knitting fascinating and whether you get done by Turkey Day - um, sure why not? ;-)

  7. Pretty! Purple!

    I'm dying to make a nice cabled vest, which is odd, because I have never liked vests.
