Update on the 30 Day Sweater

Obviously I'm running a bit behind. I could give you a whole series of excuses, but that would be tedious and boring. I will only say that there was a wedding of sorts, and then a couple of holidays, and life just happened. When life gets chaotic, I crave stockinette, in-the-round, gauge-free, don't-make-me-think projects.  

So, I am nowhere close to finished with this sweater, but I've learned a lot and I'm not giving up. If you can remember all the way back to October, you will know that I decided to knit the Lollipop Cardigan by Vera Sanon using Milky Way in colorway Nimbus. 

I was pretty concerned about the shoulders, that was a completely new thing for me, but look how nicely they're coming out!

Through some clever construction techniques, I get the look of set in shoulders without needing to do all that seaming. As an added bonus, once I get to the point where I can separate my sleeves from the body, I should be able to try it on. 

I've worked enough rows of the beading and lace to feel pretty comfortable with all the stitches. I still don't consider this a travel project, but once the beading is done I might be willing to reconsider. 

Do you have any projects  you're dying to finish, but just can't seem to find the time?
