I Can't Get Anymore Behind

Waves of GrainI started knitting a lace sweater pattern from an old Sandra magazine....got about 1/2 way up the backside and decided that I wasn't enjoying the knit. So I frogged it. Now I'm working on Waves of Grain from an old summer Vogue (see photo). I obvously haven't gotten very far.

I did finish the little summer tankini top from July 15 (when I was knitting on the lazy river at the water park/July 15th entry.) Way cute on! I did it in the cotton/elastic yarn from Elann and while I find the elastic obnoxious to knit with, I love the feel of the finished garment.

Hyrna may be headed for the frogpond as well. I don't have the mental energy to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Thank you those who have left encouragement. I keep promising myself that I'll have time to thank you all properly....and then the next thing I know, I'm late again.
