Sweater in a Sunbeam

I don't remember the last time that I worked exclusively on one project for this long. Going on three weeks now, Marjorie is not what I'd call an instant gratification knit.

But she sure is pretty.

With the back done, I'm now working my way up the front, with no signs of getting bored yet. Just as I start to tire of the constant cabling (on every right-side row), I get a nice long section of stockinette to break it up.

I'm planning to get this done to wear this spring. And with no signs of spring on the horizon yet (other than the occasional bit of freezing rain mixed in with the snow, but that kind of happens all winter long here), it looks like a reachable goal.

OOOOOOOH! I have Marjorie in my Ravelry queue. I can't wait to see how yours turns out. It looks lovely and the colour is stunning!

Yep, she's looking gorgeous and I'm with joanna, that colour is beautiful.

Ooh it's looking nice! You are so right about project monogamy. I need to get back to that and I forget how I stopped in the first place...

Looking very lovely - did you see the interview with the designer on Ysolda's blog? Very interesting project that the pattern is part of.
