I’ve finally finished Clue 2 and I’m about a quarter of the way through Clue 3.
I’ve now seen a complete shawl and that’s given me a little bit of a kick-up-the-posterior to get moving. Although the smell of the yarn (vinegar) makes me feel alternately queezy and hungry.
Is it a bird?
Well, no. But I can’t say what it is just yet. Here’s a little sneek peek:
The photo above is one of the front cables. I’m doing a four-stitch garter edging and the cardigan will have a ribbon facing on to which will be sewn press studs. My mum has problems with very fine motor movement in her fingers and so zips are bad, buttons better, press studs best!
Progess is super slow at the moment because I’m increasing 8 stitches every other row and even though it’s aran-weight yarn, it’s still taking some time to complete a single row.
Thanks to Uknitty, I now also know that Arien is Welsh for Frost. Ironic really, becuase my mum doesn’t really “do” Winter!
*The photo is supposed to show me being “ticked” off with the noise, with my earphones in. It just looks like I’m gurning. Typical.
