The Land of Pea Coats

I've been putting this off for so long. Why? Not sure really. Perhaps I'm a little worried about my calculations being off and I'll run out of yarn. Maybe I feel like this has become a chore more so then a desire.

The yarn isn't the softest on the market...and I'm okay with that. I guess I figured it would go a lot quicker. I mean come on... chunky yarn and big needles is suppose to equal fast knit. I cast-on over the weekend and 230 stitches in this woven stitch is nothing to sneeze at. Keeping the tension is also killing my hands, so I can't work on it for any long periods of time.

Here is what I have so far:



Nice right? Yeah, we'll see. I can only hope that I'll have this done at least by Spring.

Well, but it IS beautiful. And if you can finish Fulmar, you can knit this. :)

It's lovely. I suggest chocolate after every 5 rows or so. :)
