Good ol' fashioned knitting

The Old Shale baby cardi is coming along nicely.
As you can see, I'm through most of the body. This is on hold now while I knit the sleeves. Then they will all be joined up so I can finish the yoke. I generally prefer to work top-down, but I couldn't be bothered to re-work the pattern.
It's got a nice little bit of lace to keep it interesting, but for the most part, it's a pretty mindless knit. I'm hoping to have it wrapped up by the end of the week. I have 43 days left to get at least a few fair entries together.
