So i have a little story to tell you, for the past month i have been knitting a cardigan, although i have other things on the go this had a huge amount of my time, and on sunday my mam came to visit and sewed it all together and i tried it on and it looked like this.
Do you know how sad this makes me? erm really really
its supposed to look like this
now i thought the sleeves looked big but i think i have generally knit a size that is far too big for me, the yarn only has 30% wool content so i doubt washing it would make a huge difference.
So im gonna have to frog it arent i? oh man i really dont want to, nor do i want to leave it because i do want this garment and like now not when it is the middle of winter :(
So i have started a couple of other things lately including the $5 in Paris jumper
it is top down and in the round, so far so good
im using a bit of stylecraft aran, which is cheap but still nice and soft and washing washable.
and what else? well how about a bit of crochet to shake it up?
This is a lap blanket i have started with the help of my super crochet pal Heather, I am doing half and my sister is doing half for my grannies 80th birthday in January, we both are knitters and are pretty new to crochet so we will see how it goes.
I have other things on the go but mostly they are being ignored for now lol
So I'm off to see what everyone else is working on over on Tamis WIP blog
any advice on my 'situation' is greatly appreciated
thanks for calling by
