Getting back on track...

...albeit very slowly. Most of my WIPs remain slightly abandoned in favour of other things; on more than one occasion this week my crafting time has found me sat at my piano rather than in front of the TV with a hook in my hand.

I had hoped that I would have something more tangible to share on that front, having ordered the rather nifty cable that allows me to connect my piano to my laptop, but I can't currently get the software to work to actually make a recording! I will keep trying though.

I started a new project for the Year of Projects last weekend, the Cherry Wrap. It has been my main focus this week (as you'd expect, what with it being new and exciting and all). So far, I've completed one out of three panels for the main body of the wrap.

Colour is not accurate. It's more red than this.
Having deciphered the pattern, it's moving along quite quickly. But before I cut my yarn and move on to the second pane, I need to double check the measurements and make sure it will end up the right size!

I did knit another four rows on the Easy Lace stole. I know I haven't mentioned it in a while, but it is growing, slowly. I last measured it in July, about a month after first casting on. It was 9.5 inches then.

Today it is 13 inches which, considering I don't really recall doing much to it in August, is quite an achievement! Now my Jane Austen is finished, I think this will reclaim its position as my roleplay night knitting.

I'm off to Alton Towers tomorrow, so I may take it along to knit in the car too.

For more WIPs head on over to Tami's! I would be Yarn-along ing this week, but I left my book in work yesterday and since I'm not back in the office till next week, I'm just going to have to wait. I am mere pages away from finishing Unseen Academicals too!
