Slowly slowly

I haven’t posted about my actual knitting for a while. This might be because not much has changed since the last time I talked about my knitting.
This is the edging of my Village Sweater Wrap: 

The picture fails to capture how much further there is to go. I'm just past the first arm hole, so just over a third of the way through. It’s 47 stitches of relatively simple lace. I’ve been knitting it since Monday two weeks ago. It’s quite pleasant, and slowly growing but I can’t quite work out why it’s growing so slowly.
One reason I know is that the first week I was knitting it during Good Beer Week, so I didn’t take it out and about with me. I knit other things, and when I’m knitting two things it makes everything feel like it takes forever.
But the main reason, I think, is that this is just a slow knit for me. I love the needles I’m knitting on (Karbonz of course) I love the yarn, I love the way the lace looks.

So really, what’s the rush? I’m not going to be cold without it, I’m enjoying the process, so I’m going to keep knitting and loving this for as long as it takes.
