What's that old saying?

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Right?

At least that's what it feels like knitting this lace cardigan. I complete one lace repeat of the pattern, or 4 rows. I measure and get the same measurement I did before I knit those 4 rows. How is this happening? It's the knitting black hole. By this time, I would have thought I'd have been far into the neckline and armhole shaping. I haven't reached that point. Yet. Any lace repeat now, and I'll have something besides a frilly skirt to show you.

In complete frustration, I took Devon's suggestion to post a photo of my project, but really, I wanted to recreate the first photo so that once and for all, I have proof of progress.

It must be that black sheep tape measure that's lying to me.
