No wonder I prefer knitting for the kids

This is a slow knit for me. Man, I'd hate to find out how I feel once I start knitting my Kyoto sweater. I'm roughly done w/half the back before I get to the shoulder shaping so I think I'll finish this by this upcoming holiday weekend. So far it fits, but I'm still wondering at the proportionality of not knitting the 5th round of alien heads. Which is probably why I still haven't pulled out my 2 lifelines. Paranoid much?

But I also think my slow progress has a lot to do w/the lack of give in this bamboo yarn. I've also been knitting monkey1's bag and I've already finished the 1 hank of Mango Moon and started the 2nd. I may even finish her bag this upcoming weekend as well.

In any case, I do need to go back to the BO scarf. I figure if I do 1-10 row lace repeat/day, I should finish the scarf by the 2nd or 3rd week of July provided I don't sidetrack myself too much with other projects. Am wanting to UEU my leftover Mission Fall 1824 cotton by making a bunch of the LMKG hats or the brilliantly simple bibs from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. I also want to make at least 2 petal bibs from One Skein out of my leftover KP Shine sport since monkey1's favorite preschool teacher gave birth to twin girls.

Nice! I like the color. Are you progress-photoing back to the KAL? I love the Kyoto pattern: I finished one (for me) and am procrastinating casting on another for a friend.

Not as often as I progress on my blog. Will probably post one later this week if I'm not done by then.

I'm interested in how your Kyoto worked out for you. Details in your blog at all?
