Le Tour and Birch

Birch's progress seems slow, but there are sooo many tiny stitches that I feel like I did a lot.

The Tour de France has kicked off and this is the first year that Aron and I have not been watching it every moment as it records at home. Well, the good news is that the Tour de France KAL has been keeping me honest. We both have been sooooo busy that it has been hard to find the time, but we have nonetheless. My "progress" on Birch is slow and steady, but I think that that's what it takes to be Queen of the Mountains, right? I have included a picture of my "progress" to show that I've done something. The problem is that I had to rip back my first three rows (which took me forever to do in the first place) only to end up cutting the yarn and starting over. Anyone who has ever worked with Kidsilk Haze knows that ripping back is a joke, right? I am now in the middle of row 6 (row 8, look out - I'm on my way!). I'm trucking along slowly now and hope to be finished by my mom's birthday in early October. If I can't, we'll see how Christmas works as a new deadline. ;)

The yarn looks really pretty, good luck with it.

just remember the little engine that could... I think I can I think I can!

I managed to come back from my snafu and I'm sure you can, too!! We're gonna beat these mountains!

I bet your pace will pick up as you get used to the Haze (and the pattern). That's a beautiful blue!
