There and Back Again… Knit Marathon Update #3

Well, today is going well so far (aside from the obvious lack of sleep)…

It is 12:50 pm, and I knit from 8:00 to 9:20 on my Blue Knit-a-Long Kaftan.

Then? Well, it’s Wednesday, so I went to knit with my Wednesday LAdies at The Fiber Studio. I got there around 10, ate my lunch, and was back on the needles around 10:30. I knit on my Kaftan the entire time, and around 12:20 I was up to the underarm, so I packed it in and headed home.

Here’s my progress…

Now I am back to the needles… The instructions have you work both sides up the front together, but it has been a challenge for me, and I have had to do a bunch of ripping out, so I think I will drop one of the sides and just work them separately.

We had a little minor emergency today, so I will be knitting for an hour, then going to get my son to bring him to the Doctors. I will be bringing my knitting, and hope to get some done there, but can’t promise anything… Thank goodness I got up and started so early, I may need the extra time!

My stats:

Total knitting time so far: 6 1/2 hours

Project progress: pom pom peds – 1 complete through the heel gussets

Happy knitting!

    Kaftan is looking great! I love the color – it makes me want to rip out my yellow sweater and cast on with a gorgeous blue like yours 🙂

    I was amazed to see that you started at 4:30am!!! I bet it was quiet in the house.
