Well, last night I ended up frogging the front of Sophie. I'd love to say it's the patterns fault and not mine, but no, it definitely was me having a mad half hour. Sometimes I think that if a 'quick knit' doesn't work out, it just isn't meant to be. Oh, and did I mention, I haven't got enough yarn to finish it!!!!!!!!
I'm a little bit short as I'm making it all one colour. So whether it gets finished or totally frogged depends on whether I can get another ball in the same dye lot or not. I'll try John Lewis and maybe a couple of other online stores but that will be it. I don't mind if it doesn't get finished now. I've lost interest now. I've moved on.......
I started a halterneck top in Rowan 4 Ply Cotton in Allure 119, a very pale pink which is now discontinued. The pattern I'm using is a freebie one for Rowan International members and it's worked from the straps down. It's the first time I've done one that way and and I'm really enjoying it.
I finished my lovely sneaker sock and it fits perfectly and will be fab for my trainers. Well it will, as soon as it has mate of course.
Talking of trainers, I got 2 balls of Cotton Braid in Klimt from my very kind and generous friend Linda last week and wow - doesn't it match my trainers brilliantly! So of course I will have to make a matching bag - not yet of course, I'll have to wait until I'm sure that my brain is back in fully functional working order!
