Welcome to Wool on Sundays – 59!
This week, it seems that, yarnwise, nothing is going quite right! We’ve spent all day moving furniture about so I’ve had no time to make a post and now the photos are black and white because they are indoor night time pictures and they just look hideous in colour!
The yellow cardigan has grown but whether it will fit is anyone’s guess. If I measure a tension square it is very much out (something I’ve noticed before when using Garn Studio patterns with yarn that isn’t Drops but I had forgotten about it) but when I measure the whole thing it seems to be about the right size. Perhaps I’ll have to diet…
Apart from discovering that, my attempt at the: KNITFreedom – Liat’s Limitless Cast-On for Two-at-a-Time ANYTHING! was a shambles! I made at least three attempts on various evenings but the needle part of my circular needle seemed to be too long or something and my stitches just jammed and wouldn’t turn. In the end I gave up and I’m knitting the sleeves back and forth, which is disappointing because I was really looking forward to a no-sew finish. I did consider buying dpns but my local yarn shops are very limited in stock (and not very local) and I don’t want to place an online order just for needles. I also think I should master that two at a time business but I don’t want to lose momentum on this cardigan.
Whether they are or not, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy week :)
