With a month to go until my wedding I was forced to assess my progress on my wedding shrug and had to admit that progress had been smidge slow. Even with the wedding looming I was finding it difficult to motivate myself to knit more endless rows of stockinette. So I decided to put a reward system in place. For each 'pattern repeat' completed (i.e 23 rows stockinette, 3 short rows) I was allowed a short break to spin in. This may have been effective had this not happened just before I finished my first repeat.
2 cats, 2 immobilised people!
Clearly I was not going anywhere, so I just kept on knitting and have finally finished the main body of the shrug.
I made a circle!
Now I just have to do the back pieces, the pattern has them half lace and half stockinette but as soon as I decided to knit this I knew that would bug me and would have to do all lace or all stockinette. With time shortening I've plumped for the stockinette - boring but at least I can just knit and knit with no need for concentration so hopefully it'll be done in no time.
