I know myself as a knitter and I knew that Jeanie would get a bit tedious but man oh man:
It is really pretty when you look at the dropped stitches:
Turn your head sideways please. And this is pretty bleached out for whatever reason.
It is a tedious knit because it combines two things that take a bit of time: reverse cabling meaning that the pattern is k1 p1 so the cables get reversed, and the drop stitches mean that out of every eight stitches, four are knit or purled through the back (it goes like this: k1tbl p1 k1 p1tbl k1tpb p1 k1 p1tbl) (OK I could have done that in four stitches but the cables are a 4/4 so yeah) and it just takes so long. So long.
Anyway, I will persevere. I would really like to get this done by the end of summer break, which gives me til the last week in September, so I might be able to do it.
