When I first started knitting Tinker each row was taking me so long that I actually considered casting on another, simpler, project so that I could see some sort of progress to keep me going. It has been a lovely surprise then that I'm seeing quite a lot of progress on Tinker itself. Whether this is as a result of cabling without a cable needle I don't know, but I'm quickly becoming a convert. I wasn't too sure at first, but once I hit the left leaning cable section the difference was pretty marked. I'm now halfway through the knitting and I'm really pleased with it so far.
Cracking on, I should have an FO in a couple of days, yay!
