I promised myself (via you all) that I’d finish everything on my needles before I cast on something new. Well, I’ve stuck to the last part – I haven’t cast on anything. But I’m having trouble with the first.
I’m not sure what’s wrong with me lately – everything I knit has to be re-done . . . or maybe I’m just getting more particular.
One Baby Surprise Jacket finished and with its new owner. Another BSJ needs to be sewn up. Purple linen jacket needs about another 3 hours – sew in second sleeve, sew in ends etc. I crocheted the edgings and I think it looks good but note to self – NEVER crochet with Rowan Linen. It splits dreadfully and it seems more pronounced when crocheting than knitting. Winter jumper untouched ( only needs a collar but who needs a winter jumper when the temperature is still hovering between 25 and 30C?).
No knitting tonight – out with friends from England. No knitting tomorrow night – Easter Show Preview night. And then it’s the 31st. So I’ve failed!
But I won’t give up (or in). I’ve Wednesday night and Thursday night, which should be enough. Then I can look forward to Easter and something NEW to knit (and 800g of 4 ply 100% silk arrived in my post box today!).
And the good news is that I may have sold the pattern for the “secret project” I posted about a couple of weeks ago – the orange cable and garter stitch ‘thing’.
All pictures will be posted over Easter.
ETA: It’s 800 METRES of silk (220g) not 800g.
