needles still clicking
A friend asked me about how my knitting was going ... with work so very busy at the moment one would think there was nothing to tell ... au contraire. I have a couple of things to report.
One is that I have finished a project ... not the project I started but it is finished nonetheless. The starting block held the vision of a viennese shrug from interweave knits ... but the journey was fraught ... not only were insufficient quantities of the wool purchased ... it was the last hank of that colour run. Consequently the finishing line was a baby's blanket! Oops.
The second knitting report is that I am making a cute wee jersey (big digger sweater) for my nephew, Blake. I unraveled a cardigan I've been making for myself for the last 200 years or so, as I discovered that I was doing my Yarn Over wrong and the whole thing was way too short! So now its reforming itself into a child's sweater ... I think the yarn is happy about this ... as the inside of my knitting stash can be an incredibly boring place to be ... being worn by Blake would be a far more exciting prospect.
So both projects are very wibbly wobbly stories of knitting disasters and recoveries ... bit like working in film really.
