Year of Projects - Week 3

I've been completely monogamous this past week - knitting nothing but the Elfe. I really, really, really want to finish it before I leave for vacation, which means I have another 9 days to knit ~80 rounds. Should be doable as long as I don't allow myself to get too sidetracked. The only problem is that we're having a really warm July this year, and knitting with wool in 28+C gets interesting from time to time.

Still, I'm making decent progress, and I absolutely LOVE the way it's knitting up. The colours are gorgeous and the yarn wonderfully soft. Can't wait to see it finished :)

  4. OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH! I love the way the colors are blending in and the fact the colors run a nice long time before shifting again. You will have those 80 rounds knocked out easily before you leave.
