Man, this has been slow going. I muffed up the re-calculated increases. Then I muffed up the fair isle pattern itself. Despite all that and the fact that I knit at half-speed with two colours I have pressed on with nary a curse word nor loss of momentum. Is there some kind of official scale of knitting zen? Well there should be! On THE UNOFFICIAL KNITTING ZEN SCALE OF ONE TO TEN,

I think I’m about a 7.

Anyway, a milestone has been reached! After the armhole shaping it’s just nice ‘n’ easy stockinette all the way down. Let me sign off with a nice picture of those hard-won floats…
