And by 8 o'clock this morning I managed to complete the back of Dennis' jumper. The last few rows were done in bed while watching the BBC Breakfast News, with the odd flick across to Friends on Channel 4! Relieved to have one piece complete anyway. The pattern is much easier the more you do it. I haven't a clue how long it's going to take to do the rest of it yet. Dennis is actually popping round tomorrow morning to drop off the lorry (for picking up the new - to us - greenhouse on Saturday) so i can show him progress "in the flesh" as it were. Hope he's pleased with it.
It is a good challenge but I do have to give myself little achievable tasks for little breaks every so often - plus it's definitely not transportable for offshore. Offshore knitting has to be a lot smaller to fit into small amounts of luggage.
