My hands started to tire quickly when knitting the 'Amble' socks. So I took a break from them for a little while to work on my Kerry lace Blue Shawl.
I knitted up 2 inches and am on row 105. The shell stitch section. It's coming out beautifully. I've had to correct lots of spots where I messed up the lace pattern or somehow dropped a YO. Even frogged back four rows when I realized I forgot three rows of plain knit. That's what happens when I put down a project for such a long time. So glad this yarn is very forgiving.
And following the suggestion of finishing a row before stopping to take a break is not realistic. With over 400 stitches on each row, the odds are against me.
