Back on it

So I did pull the vest out of the bag yesterday. Then I spent 10 minutes looking at my notes and reading the pattern and looking at my notes and at the vest trying to figure out where I had left off. It really amazes me every time how I take very specific notes that I completely understand at the time I’m taking them and when I return to the project after a break I have to figure it all out as if someone else was the last person to work on the project. This only happens with fussy things like sweaters. I have no real notes for most projects. At most a list of numbers if there are multiple rows in the repeat. 

I guess all this means is I shouldn’t interrupt this sort of project with anything other than the traveling sock. 

So the vest is coming along well now that I know where I am. If I put all my at home knitting time on it I could be done by the end of the weekend. I will have to pick up buttons but that’s easy enough. Let’s see if it happens.

  1. I’m so glad other people do this, too 🙂 After figuring out where I was and what to do next, the promise is usually made: “I will finish and not put it down and forget where I was again.” But, of course, sometimes it happens a second time…..sigh. I’m rooting for you! 😀

    Man, that’s some dedicated knitty tracking there. Yeah, it can be hard to put down a project and then try to remember where the heck I was or how to do what. I need to make better notes on where I left off.
