I've been working on my Brother's Sweater for almost two weeks and the stockinette body seems almost never ending. I'm not a huge fan of too may in progress pictures but since this does look different from when I first introduced you to it I figured it would be ok.
My plan is to knit the body until it is 17". As you can see, I'm only at 12.5" so there's still a few more to go. Assuming I'm knitting at a rate of 6" per week, I should have the correct length by the end of next week. One great thing about this project is that, at least right now, it is pretty mindless. I take it to work with me and knit a row or two on my break. I take it to class with me and knit a few more rows when the professor shows a video. No counting, no looking.
Another great thing is this Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. I've really liked working with it so far; not too scratchy, just enough wooly smell. And to top it off, I'm still on the first skein!
