Year of Projects: Week 39

Good Sunday morning! Yesterday I pulled out my Beekeeper was that 4 day challenge back in July...haven't worked on it since July!  Had to figure out where I was, as I hadn't left myself any notes!

I am feeling better, but still dealing with the exhaustion part of my disease.  I came home from school every day and take a nap...and I'm still in bed by 9 most nights...just so tired....

But I worked on it most of the past the arm divides....doesn't seem like a lot was done, but it was about 16 rows, I think (could be 12) but around the body is easy-peasy...straight shot down, may even have it for Rhinebeck, depending on the sleeves!  Trying to decide if I want to do a full sleeve or not...

That is pretty much all I've worked on this week....Next weekend is a long weekend, so maybe I'll get it finished!  Then I need to start my Vintersol...

So this is how the lists stand:

The beekeepers cardigan is a great color. I am sure it will go much quicker now that you have passed the arm holes.

I looked at the Vintersol pattern. It is gorgeous. Will be interested in the colors you choose for it.

That section up to the arm divides would be the longest rounds, wouldn’t they? So good for you, the body will go faster. What a great colour for fall!
