Welcome to the September edition on Wool on Sundays! Last week we went on a short holiday in the North West of England, which should have given me some time to continue with a green cardigan I started a while ago.
But having done the fronts and back in one piece up to the arm level, I ended up deciding that knitting the sleeves from a the lace pattern chart and incorporating increases etc in the car or in odd moments in a room with poor light (why can’t hotels have brighter lights?) would probably end up with me making mistakes or, at best, not getting much done. Then I hummed and hawed about taking the crochet flowers or starting something new and eventually just took a book instead!
I didn’t take many photos as we were in the same area as last year and the weather wasn’t so good as last time. But it was a nice break and we found a lovely place called the Westminster Tea Rooms that we had seen but not visited before.
Now I’m home I’d better press on with the green cardigan and hopefully I’ll have it finished in time for next month’s Wool on Sundays. At the moment it looks like it has been screwed up and dragged through a hedge…
But I thinks that’s just what happens when something is crushed onto circular needles for too long. I’m using the same pattern as the blue pi shawl (where I only used the border) so I’m hoping that once its finished and has space to spread out it will be ok…
Whether I like it or not will be another question. One day in the Summer, I thought a khaki lace cardigan would be nice for Autumn but now I’m wondering what possessed me!
If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, I’d love you to link up. 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). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. The next Wool on Sundays will be on Sunday 1st October.
