The weight of guilt being lifted off my shoulders.

I've started working on Mom's sweater again. That sigh you hear is not the early spring's balmy breezes, but the weight of guilt being lifted off my shoulders. For those of you who don't know, I am doing a Kaffe Fassett inspired design (small squares) in a cardi who's shape I've custom designed to fit my mum. I've had the back finished for about a year. The sweater is worsted weight: The pattern is 16 squares (8 each side) of 6st x 8 rows. My goal is to do one row of squares a day. The actual knitting is VERY FAST...the hassle is adding and weaving in ALL THAT YARN.
