Peacock’s Tail update

Gotta love doilies for portable knitting! The Peacock’s Tail doily, started last spring, is coming along nicely. The expanding feather-and-fan pattern took a while to catch on to – it can be quite counter-intuitive to me. I’m at row 80 of 126, which in the circular knitting world translates into only about 40%.

Whenever I knit on such tiny needles (1.5mm), my hands get used to it – and I can’t pick up any other knitting without feeling like I’m using baseball bats. So it seems that, unless I start socks or something, I won’t be able to do any other knitting until it’s done! Do any of you have the same issue?
