And here’s the progress I’ve made (colour is more accurate in this photo than last week’s)
Closer shot of the number of rows I’ve done, as indicated by the blue stitch marker:
I think 7 days is all I can manage on this (it takes a great deal of concentration and I’m increasing 6 sts every other row so it’s only going to get harder!), so I’ve switched to another long-languishing UFO.
First, a quick refresh of the memory.
Here’s where I started with the Birch stole two weeks ago:
And here’s where I’m up to now:
I’m going to go ahead and add this to my WIP pile since I have now memorised the lace pattern (and almost memorised the side triangles).

Terrible photo, but you get the idea! It’s lace knitting with beads so it is not TV-knitting. This is “Sitting bolt upright in a chair with good lighting and maybe a podcast on but absolutely no TV” knitting. Hence the UFO status!
We shall see whether the next 7 days can add to my progress on this potentially-lovely piece of knitting…
