Yarn Along

It's very, very early on Wednesday, so it's time for Yarn Along!
I just happened to be up with a sad, gassy baby. So, we took a trip to the pharmacy for some relief and now she's resting comfortably and I can talk about my knitting :)
I'm kind of stalled out on the Voluta. It could be the fact that the rows are so long, or that I haven't read the pattern for a while and I can't remember where I should stop for the armholes, or it could be the fact that I don't really like where I joined the body to the border.
Whatever the reason, I have only worked about 3 rows since the Youngest was born.
Come to think of it, it could also be that I just don't often have two hands free and the requisite brain power to knit...
In the reading column I took a week off from A Feast for Crows to finish up Blood, Bones and Butter which was terrific.
(please excuse my knee)
But now I am back into the world of Westeros and the story is picking up again.
What's on your needles today?

wow, what a great cable pattern. Sometimes knitting just needs to be slow and steady, it will always be patiently waiting for you:)

That's quite a cable pattern! I could see how that could affect things, especially with a small one to take care of, too.

Too bad that two hands are a definite requirement for knitting! :)

Our sad, gassy baby was happier today--hope your's was too!
