Whatever the reason, here is the progress on both my Project Purple and Patchwork.
About 4 inches I would say. It is a very long scarf/wrap so needs to be at least eight but better twelve inches I think. A ways to go.
I did start the back of Patchwork - but a very small start it is.
Just a few rows of bottom ribbing to show for my pre-nap efforts. This work was knit with the 4.5mm needless from my new Knit Picks set. That would be the set I had to buy to replace the ones lost in my ''oh-so-dumb- to leave -the-van-unlocked-in Toronto' Christmas car theft.
The front of Patchwork looks lovely though.
The colours are great and the off-centre placement of the different patches really works for me. I can knit a sweater in two weeks. I have done it a few times when competing in Knitting Olympics. The thought did cross my mind that in the two and a half weeks between retuning from Florida and heading to Hawaii, I could finish Patchwork. But I failed to take into account the tortoise effect the cold weather has on me. So glad I didn't join the '12 or 15 in 2015' group on ravelry.
