I'm Knitting Again
I don't know if you remember but some months ago I started knitting with some lovely green yarn to make a short sleeved cardigan from this pattern. It's been a while since I did any more to it but now it's finished at last!
I made it to go with my summer skirts that each have a touch of the same grassy green in them. The weather's a bit too cold for cotton skirts now but I think this might go very nicely with warmer clothes too.
After the joyless joining of pieces, (yes I love the knitting part but hate the sewing-together torture.) I really needed to make something that didn't involve fiddley ends so my next project is knitted all in one piece. It's a cowl scarf from this pattern and it's done on a round needle, something I've never used before, in fact I didn't even know they existed until I read that's what I needed to make it!
No pieces to join together at the end - oh bliss! :)
Can I also say thankyou to Yvonne from Coramantic who kindly posted my paintings on her blog today. Go and see her lovely art too!
