Rows are finally getting noticeably shorter on my deep stash Killara.

I’ve been working on this since July. Finally, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on this project. I’ve reached the second decrease pattern, which takes out 3 stitches over eight rows. Still quite a ways to go to bind off, but I imagine it won’t be much longer now. 

There was a point where I was tempted to give up on this project because it’s kind of boring. I mean, boring can be relaxing sometimes. Sometimes you want something more mentally challenging. I kept envisioning wearing it with my peach tea dress. (meaning a peach dress to wear to tea, not a dress that’s the color of peach tea, or something like that.) That vision kept me going. Now that it’s close to done, I can envision wearing it with lots of different things in my wardrobe.

A splash of color can brighten up a gloomy day, and with winter just around the corner, I forsee a lot of gloomy days coming.
