Lack of Progress

I am painfully slow knitting this. I keep picking it up when I have a spare 15 minutes, looking at it, and putting it back down. Part of this is not being up to the mental task of reading a chart and part of this is that I am not happy with my stranded knitting. I don’t normally have too much puckering when I strand, but this looks messy to me. I’m being consistent with the yarn I have in front and I am overall knitting consistently gauge-wise (I think)… ah well. Maybe it will all come out in the wash as E (PokingMyEyesOut) said when she saw it over Thanksgiving weekend.

I blame stress! ha.
