Slow going

Ok so now I have the stitches all figured out for the body of my sweater. Now it's just straight knitting and purling. I'm using a size 6 needle. I'm beginning to remember why I really never completed any large projects. It takes F-o-r-e-v-e-r-r-r-r-r. Well maybe not that bad. I will be working on a row, watching the telly, look down and realize that I'm still on the same side.

So.....I've started on working on a quicker gratification project. (smile) I started on Tulip doll by Katie Park (caffaknitted) I completed the body and am working on the head now. I'm a little concerned that the color I'm using for her skin is to pinky. I purchased some destash yarn for a fellow Ravely-er. Cascade 220. Of course I love the yarn itself, just a little iffy on the color. So I figure I'll just make her a red head, maybe with bright green eyes. I also have not decided on whether to knit her a dress or make her a fabric one. Decisions, decisions.
