Progress despite avoidance

I was making great progress on 海丰’s Ryuu-ko Sweater, started the sleeves aaannnddd put it down. Picked up the Unicorn Sleeper again, which is good, because I should be further along already. Figuring out the details of an original pattern is hard enough, but writing them down so that they make sense to others is really something else. True to form, I was avoiding it. Come to think of it, I haven’t been working on the Sutton Hoo Hat either. I also realised that 海纳’s Aviatrix Hat from last year was too small, so I made her a Conch Hat by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

I really love that pattern, I made another one last August from the same yarn for my friend’s baby. Now to choose between my two adversaries of the moment: sleeves or pattern writing.
