Get Rid of WIP's - Scarlet Marble

One of the projects I started in 2011 for a birthday present in the first week of January is the Scarlet Marble.  It is a top down cardi based on the Butler Pattern by Kerri Allman.  This is the third time I am making this cardigan and I am convinced that's why I didn't finish on time.  I started it on the 28th of December so that would have normally given me plenty of time.  Everytime I picked this up I got miffed.  It never seamed to grow. 

I pulled myself towards myself and am determined to get it finished by tomorrow so I can give it on Friday and therefore only be a week late!

I have finished the body and am almost finished the first sleeve, so fingers crossed tomorrow's post will reveal a completed cardigan.

The start
A few more increases rows to go
Even took it to school to fetch Pudding today!

 Tuesday's Progress I finished the body!
Not so much today!  That's all I've done on the sleeve

Not going to let that get me down and going to stick it out and plod on to get it finished for Friday.  See you tomorrow to show you one finished sleeve and the last one in progress
