It took some time, and a few more times of ripping back what I had just knitted, to finally get on with my Bachforelle stole. It was an extremely frustrating and annoying knit and it was only thanks to other knitters' helpful notes on Ravelry that I finally had a break through and got the first row of fish done.
Now that I have cracked it, knitting is going well and flows nicely. I have finished the first repeat of fishes and I think i have at least 7 more to go! It will be a while till it is done, I think, but at least I won't be putting it all aside for yet another three years.
Let me know what you are working on right now. I can always use ideas for my next project!
