The mystery slowly unfolds...

Work is going slowly on Sherlock. Much slower than I expected. But, then I have to remind myself, it's over 300 stitches, and it's colourwork... it was never going to be speedy.
I try to put at least two rows on it each day (though I try for four). As a result, I'm almost halfway through the yoke chart. After that - it's just going to be plain ol' stockknit... and I'll probably be looking back wistfully at all that slow colourwork...

Colorwork is the slowest going of all. I think in terms of years for sweaters. It's all worth the effort though. It's going to be fabulous!

Colorwork goes really sllloooowwwww for me as well. I have a cowl I have been working on since last Autumn. The slow pace is what keeps me from working consistently on it. At least you will have some stockinette in your future!

But at least you will have those skulls to entertain you. ;-)

I think colorwork is for savoring. It's so much fun watching the pattern grow row by row.
