The Black Hole

It's official: I'm in The Black Hole of Knitting.  For those not familiar with this knitting term, it refers to when you have been knitting on a project for quite some time, yet that project doesn't seem to be getting any bigger.  I have been working on my Sycamore Vest for several years now. (Ok, so it's really only been a few weeks and I've mostly been knitting on it for the past few days.)  I have been knitting and knitting and knitting.... and it's not getting any bigger.  Despite needing two new balls of yarn.
I'm so excited to get this knit and it's just going nowhere.  When I get done with the body and to separating for the armholes, I'll really feel like I'm making progress and I think it will go more quickly.  But apparently that is several years away.

Reality Check:
Here is my vest when I blogged about it on January 28 (six days ago):
See? Absolutely no progess. (insert sarcasm here)
