Short but sweet today.
I’m about to rip the heel out on the second Jules sock for the third time (I didn’t take notes when I did the first heel – bad knitter), so no photo-progress of that.
The Birch stole has had another tier added:
But the most progress has come on the Honeybee Cardigan:
Here’s the maths planning I did to get the lace panels in the right places:
Well, that wasn’t very short, was it? Moving on ….
Well, now I have the lace pattern memorised (the side triangles trip me up sometimes) I’m fair motoring along.
At the start of this UFO week the Birch entrelac stole looked like this:
And it now looks like this:
I’m going to keep going on this for another week, see if I can make it to the half way point (finishing the first ball of yarn).
Such is the life of a chronic!
I’ve been quietly knitting away on some things and attempting to sew some more things. I’ve been hanging around online, and generally making a nuisance of myself. I’ve joined my first ever book group!
Right, photos or it didn’t happen!
Proposition entrelac armwarmers in Mean Girls Yarn Club September yarn (wool/bamboo/nylon mix)
I’ve been making slow progress on my mum’s top-down chunky cotton chenille cardigan
Oh, how I hate this yarn …
So as an incentive I bought some lovely Aran-weight yarn from an independent dyer based just over the border from me in Yorkshire.
I was looking for some yarn for my Watershed cropped vest and found Wharfdale Woolworks on Folksy.
Rubbish photos, but I think you get the idea!
I’ve made an accidental modification to Watershed which I’ll talk about in the FO post but, as Tim Gunn would say, I’m making it work!
No promises as to next post schedule but let’s just say I hope it will be sooner rather than later?!
