So I was continuing my sock pattern using DPN's and it was starting to get really tedious, especially after I realised that I'd have to do it all again in order to have a pair (who knew?!?). So I ripped it out, and was faced with the question; "What other extremely easy, small diameter garments could I knit for practice?!
Willy warmer! haha! So I used my sock pattern to guage roughly how many stitches I would have to cast on (I more or less just halfed it) and started knitting in K2P2 ribbing. Turns out I underestimated it so I had to tear it all out again, but I think I'm on target this time...I should get it done tonight! Would working pictures be completely inappropriate?!? haha
My jumper is coming along super well! I'm so pleased with it so far; I feel like knitting something so large has really helped with regulating the tension of my knitting, and I find I can just sorta let my mind wander and my hands just keep on stitching! It's quite nice!
Another really sweet thing; my wee granny (who taught me to knit) was reading one of her old-lady magazines and it had a knitting pattern in it for little A-line summer dresses for children. So she ripped it out and told me to knit it for my little niece, Layla, and I'm quite excited about it. I think I'm going to use like a chocolate brown yarn, and either sky blue, or lime green ribbon! If I use blue ribbon i might make some cream stripes in the pattern. We'll see! She's going to be the best dressed 2 year old in nursery! lol
Anyway, I'm still knitting the scarfs...IHATEBOUCLEYARN!!!!!! Cabling is fun thought! :-)
