Knitting Distraction

It’s a little crazy but I joined a group whose goal it is to knit ten lace shawls in 2010.  Yeah, ten lace shawls in one year.  Crazy – like I said. 

None of the ten can be cast on before January 1st.  Since I’ve recently finished one big lace project (which I cannot show on the blog for a few more days) I’ve been a bit antsy.  I don’t want to begin any new lace projects that cannot be completed before the end of the year.  So what’s a knitter to do?  Pick up a project that has been languishing in a bag stuck in the corner cubby of her bookshelf is what.  

May I present 1/3 of the color portion of one sleeve of the Equinox Yoke Pullover.  The sleeves are knit flat in fair isle then they join the body sections (already knit) on the circular needle.  Then the big fair isle yoke is knitted in the round.
Sounds easy huh? 

Flat knitting fair isle is kicking my butt. 

It’s brutal. 

It’s hard.

But my fingers are distracted from lace and that’s what I was aiming for.  WTF
