The Opinionated Lazy Knitter

This new knitalong came up just as I had spent an afternoon gazing at a wall of Cascade 220 to pick out colors for the Fair Isle Yoke Cardigan in The Opinionated Knitter. I am using the gray that was supposed to be Durrow for Wes. In fact I just picked up the nearly-complete Durrow and started knitting off the other end of the yarn. It makes my progress look epic.

But really I've only done this much.

You may notice the pony tail holder in there as a stitch marker. I couldn't be bothered to actually stand up and go get a real marker. And in the final mark of true laziness I'm using the numbers and shaping from Retro Prep (not just because I'm lazy but also because that's my favorite sweater). I will have to do a little rejiggering when it gets to the yoke. But I'm too lazy to think about that now.
