Sometimes, after putting a project aside for a length of time, I find it difficult to pick up again where I left off. The questions and worries about restarting grow to alarming proportions. Will I remember where I left off? Had I started the sleeve increases? Was I midway through the lace chart? Can I incorporate the increases into lace pattern okay? Will I knit a few rounds only to realize I've gone wrong?
All that hesitation and concern for nothing. It was no trouble at all to pick CeCe up again when I finally got around to it. The first sleeve is flying off the needles. After about an hour of knitting, it's halfway. It's such an enjoyable knit! And really, incorporating the increases into the lace isn't that hard - the rule is don't do a yarn over if you don't have the stitches to do the corresponding decrease! No need to make it any more complicated than that!
Just one question left - why didn't I get back to it sooner? Check out the list at Tami's Amis for more progress updates. I bet they didn't waste as much time fretting and procrastinating!
