in progress

What does this aran in progress look like? Here is my work slightly tidied up for camera viewing.



Usually I spread things out a bit more than this. I've included a picture of my notes to myself about which cable line I'm at. I've got three columns right now. The first number is the row of the 24 row cable and the second number is the eight row cable. Notice how they don't stay in line with each other. This makes it nearly impossible for me to memorize the pattern. I find that I can keep track a lot easier if I write out the corresponding rows and then draw a line under the one I just completed.

I didn't have much of a chance to knit this weekend. I've completed about a hundred rows so far.

It looks as if your project is coming along very nicely!! I will definitely be back to see your progress. btw...I thought I was the only one who kept notes of rows completed...smile.

I knitted an aran back when I was in college and didn't really know what I was doing knitting-wise. It had several patterns across, and they did NOT line up with each other.
My solution was similar to yours: I took a little notebook, and actually wrote out, line by line, what I had to do on each row. Tedious set-up, but it was worth it in the time saved during the knitting.
We were in your neck of the woods yesterday, down in Juliette, GA! Our family has a get-together every year down there.

What a wicked cruel pattern! Sounds like you have a system to deal with it. Your hundred rows look AMAZING!
