and I am in love!
This is a great pattern, very well written.
You know a funny thing happens when you start to tell people about your new venture. They want to buy stuff. I have been so very fortunate that so many people have been able to keep me busy over the last month or so.
But along with the good comes the bad, and the bad in this situation, is the lack of knitting.
I hadn’t touched the needles in nearly six weeks, but in the last week I have remedied that. I have a few rows left on the back of my Making Waves Cardigan, and then it is on to the sleeves.
I really want to get this off the needles as soon as I possibly can, so I am going to be head down, bum up for a while. It helps that My Soldier is away, I can sit on the couch after the kids go to bed and knit until I can’t keep my eyes open anymore.
I also want to finish it before Bells and I start something else.
It has been starting to get cold here in the mornings, and because I have to push a pram to school, I can’t stuff my hands in my pockets to keep them warm. So hand coverings of some description are in order.
After a particularily torturous day, that had me screaming like a banshee and culminated in three screaming children on a bus, I poured myself a glass of wine (actually Soldier did) and started faffing about on Ravelry.
I stumbled upon these. What an ingenious idea. I’m thinking fingerless mitts inside the outer layer.
Just one dilemma. I have a dark grey coat as well as a red one. Should I do grey mitts with red outer, or red mitts with grey outer?
Things are going well with the MW Cardi.
Except for one little thing. Since I am knitting with a hand dyed yarn, I am alternating skeins. I wasn’t sure how to go about this, but a little Twitter conversation with DrK gave me the answers. I have decided to alternate all four skeins.
However, it is resulting in this little mess
or is it a big one! Is there a way to minimise it?
