I also have been slowly working on my February Lady Sweater. I am now past the third button hole. A couple more rows of garter stitch and then I start my eyelet increase row! Yeah! Some variety is coming. As I've been finding time to knit, I've also found out some things about myself...
1. Mistakes are OK...I get a sense of accomplishment when I have to unknit or frog and then fix the problem. I also learn a little more about the process of knitting when I have to fix something.
2. I don't have to keep up with anyone...I'm knitting for the enjoyment of creating and learning.
3. Having 2 projects going is a great way for me to set one aside when I feel stumped or get to a spot that is dragging. It keeps me from being frustrated with one project.
4. I need to switch my FLS to Addis. These Denise needles are great, but not for every project. My Ella Rae wool yarn keeps binding up on the rubber cable and it is a lot of work moving my stitches along. I'm heading to my lys to pick up Addis this afternoon. My friend Beth Ann was right, some things just need to be done on Addis. (I just wish they weren't so stinkin' pricey.)
