The experience on my knitting cruise of successfully doing both color work and charted patterns (as simple as they were) was the push I needed to get back on the Pavone in White bandwagon. I'm one row from done with Chart A of the pattern. I've messed up twice so far, but I blame socializing and being distracted rather than not knowing what the pattern actually said.
I feel rather ok with this knitting. It's going to continue to be slow because I have to concentrate on it rather than use it to fill in empty moments.
