Slow And Not So Steady

Since completing my last project two weeks ago, I have been diligently working on this pullover for my son, at every possible knitting time that I could find. But between the facts that it has a lot of cabling, it hurts my hands, and that I have very little knitting time at the end of the day, the progress has been slow. I have barely managed ten inches of the body (it is in round, if that is any consolation).

A bit disheartened by the slow going, I decided to have a little project on the side_ a hat. But just then, certain family circumstances arose that require my time and attention for the next month or so. So, my already strained knitting time is further depleted and lately I find myself too tired at the end of the day, to even pick up my needles.
However, it seems that though my hands may be tired and my time short, but my desire to knit is still strong. I find myself planning another upcycling project besides the hat. And I plan to persevere with the sweater. At least in my mind.


  1. That sweater will be stunning! I can see why you don't want to work on it when you are really tired, though; it's not something like plain socks that you can knit with your eyes closed. I hope you will soon have all the time you wish for knitting...your projects are always so lovely :)

  2. MashaAllah that cabling is amazing! May Allah grant you the tawfeeq to finish in due time :)

  3. Send you my best wishes and hope you can get more strength later on.
