I’ve been knitting very slowly for the last few weeks.Â I have enjoyed and really want the items I’m knitting to be finished but I haven’t been so excited by them that I have been in a crazy rush to finish them.Â Life seems so busy right now that knitting is playing a very small role.Â However I’m sure that won’t last for too long!
I have finished Wisp for my mother’s birthday next week.Â Unfortunately it is not perfect – it took me quite a while to stop dropping stitches at the start and a lace mohair pattern is not too forgiving of that!Â They are very carefully concealed for the photo but hopefully she will turn a blind eye….
And I’ve finally settled on what to use my Rowan Tapestry for …. a Clapotis
This was my progress as of last week before my camera died – I have actually just now finished the straight rows so I should be finished but the end of the week.Â I am so in love with this – I love the colour, the feel of the yarn and how soft it is.Â It will be perfect for the freezing cold spring we are having.Â What are the chances though that by the end of the week we will have sun splitting the rocks??
I think that it is knitting so slowly as it isn’t very involved knitting.Â Great for in front of the tv!Â I think I need to get my teeth into a cable or lace project.
I’ve been playing with a few more knitting designs some summer tops and cardigans, I’ve got a few skiens of Araucania Patagonia that I think that could make a really good summer cardigan for our Irish summer.Â Must get thinking and swatching.
