I Think I Can

Amazing as it seems, especially to me, I think Autumn Fair is  on target.  With a goal to be wearable by the end of the month, I have almost two thirds of the body finished.  I think I can finish it on time.

The sleeves, tackled first,   are done.   The back, the current piece,  requires 6 and a half repeats of the 18 row cable pattern before reaching the yoke  and right now, I am working on repeat number 6.  The end of this major piece is in sight.
The yoke is a less complicated, garter ridge pattern so should flow from my needles more quickly.    

Today, I feel confident that I will wear this on November 1.  Mind you, before that date,  there is a week of  house guests to host, a Thanksgiving dinner to prepare and various other community commitments to honour.  But I think I can, I think I can...

Wow. You have the electric knitting machine and then you - the manual one!

Most encouraging progress; you're a good example to timid-knitting folk like me.
