When I was growing up my mother was always telling me "patience is a virtue" to which I would respond "THAT I DON'T HAVE!" I have never been known for my patience despite the fact my mother has the patience of a saint. I like to think that as I have grown older I have become more patient and maybe I have, but then as my irritation rises because the 411 lady isn't giving me my number fast enough I realize maybe I haven't! So I'm very proud of myself that I have stuck to the baby sweater despite my desires to move on to other projects. I have been patient with it and have mastered the pattern. No longer am I ripping out every other row. I have now finished the back and the left side. I have moved on to the sleeves leaving the front side for the last piece since it will go fairly quickly. I am currently knitting both sleeves at the same time as I was worried that my new patient self might not be able to immediately turn to a second sleeve after finishing the first. I have never done that before but it is going fairly well. It also does seem to be more efficient. Keep your fingers crossed that I can get it done in time!
