Soleil continues

I got some more done on Soleil last night. I'm in the middle of the increases. The thing that kills me (and my motivation) when I'm working in the round is that it takes twice as long to show progress. I know I'm getting both the back and front done at once and I won't have to seam things together in the end, but I do so much of my knitting flat, that I don't really feel like I'm getting anywhere. If I could have a front or a back done, it would make me feel like I was halfway done while, on this project, working in the round, I am probably halfway done, but it doesn't feel like it. Does anyone else feel like this when you're working in the round? Am I crazy? (Don't answer that one.) I love the color and the feel of this top, but I think its the lack of obvious progress that has made me so unmotivated to work on it. I know I'll wear the silly thing once its finished, I just need to get it finished!

I feel exactly the same way, so we're both crazy. I don't mind seaming, so I also knit a lot of things in pieces, and doing things in the round just makes me want to shoot myself.

Yes, knitting in the round does seem to make a project drag on and on. There's nothing like completing a back to motivate you to start the front! With knitting in the round, there is no "half way point" motivation. Keep plugging away, though. It looks great so far!

I'm the total opposite. I don't like seaming so I tend to gravitate towards patterns knit in the round. Your Soleil looks great!

I have not noticed this problem on knitting in the round, but when I knit two socks simultaneously they seem to take EXTRA long. (My husband keeps telling me to remember that I am getting both done at once.)
