More pictures after the jump.
Here’s my method of keeping record of time passage and yarn amounts while I work:
I was inspired by Austin Kleon’s Get Yourself A Calendar post. Everytime I finish a ball of yarn, I got to mark it down. Then I realized that I was taking the Chuppah-Cabra everywhere with me, so I decided to keep track of that too. Favorite place so far? The 4 train from Woodlawn to Brooklyn. Cabling on a jostling subway train is quite challenging. I gave up trying to knit once we had to stand.
If you don’t already know Austin Kleon, he wrote How To Steal Like An Artist, which is a great read for anyone in need of a inspiration and a reminder of why we do what we do.
Speaking of cabling, I lost my cable needle in R&T’s couch. I’ve done the last 10 repeats without it, and I think my knitting time has improved due to that.
My goal is to finish the orange border and cast on the next chocolate brown border this week. So far I have three out of ten repeats done on the last side of the orange border. I got a major boost of encouragement from seeing Alana and Rebecca at their wedding shower/party last night. They’re so excited about their chuppah that it rubbed off on me too!
