Past Time

It’s nearly a month since the flame was extinguished at the Summer 2012 London Olympics, and I believe I’ve knit exactly once since then. It surprises me, a bit, the way I’ve let time get away from me like that. I didn’t manage to finish an entire sweater–I never really thought I would–but I did very nearly make it to the halfway point.

Ondule sweater back--nearly finished

The left (right? can’t remember…) front I believe I’ve posted already, but here is the nearly finished back. I know intellectually that there are nearly twice as many stitches as one front, but I still can’t believe how much longer it seems to be taking (lack of knitting time aside).

In some ways I’m dismayed that I’ve seemingly neglected my knitting so much–but fall is in the air. Perhaps that’s all I needed–humidity and wool don’t go well together, after all…
