You know that old question that's supposed to reveal volumes about how you see the world, "Is the glass half empty or half full?" When I was asked this as a kid, I responded, "Only half full."
This is Icarus as of today.
I freely admit that it looks no different than it has for the past 7394 rows.
But this is the yarn for Icarus.
More specifically, this is the end of the first skein of yarn for Icarus. This means that, however it looks, I am halfway through! I am not the sort of knitter who allows projects to linger. I either finish it or frog it, usually within a few weeks. With the exception of the five-year baby blanket (an anomaly I choose to ignore) this is the longest-running knitting project of my life. I can "k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk" in my sleep. And that is the only interesting part of this otherwise entirely stockinette laceweight shawl. I am heartily sick of the whole thing. If it weren't for such an important event, I might be tempted to roll it in a ball and stuff it in the back of the yarn closet, never to see the light of day again. But the bridal shower is next month (gasp), so this needs to get finished. Soon. At this point, I'll take any encouraging sign I can get.
I'm (only) halfway done.
