Nevertheless, I will show you the progress on my Cold Mountain stole, since I am doing it as part of a Knit-A-Long and that's what it's all about--showing how it's going, even if it looks lumpy and disheveled and like something no one in their right mind would ever want to wear. I am also overlooking the fact that I am not "caught up" to where I should be if I had managed to knit 15 rows every week so far. I am, in fact, a little bit behind on the count...
|It's getting longer! Note the cowardice displayed in the use of TWO lifelines!|

I have to say I am starting to enjoy this project more. I hesitate to go so far as to say I've got the hang of it, but things that didn't make sense before, make better sense now. (Isn't that a lot like life? The more you learn about something or someone, the more sense it or he or she makes.)
The length of time of this KAL seemed a little daunting at first, but I am SO glad that I don't have to rush through this. I have so many other projects in the works right now that I have to schedule "shawl days" and "charity project days" and "new design work days," just to cover all my bases. It's a good thing I love to knit!
