Right now I’m struggling with stuff.
Firstly this Jo Sharp:
Originally designed for her DK wool, I wanted a spring version. Every stitch is a nightmare. The main body is knitted in RYC Luxury Cotton which is a horrible loose collection of bits of string. Some of it is cotton, some viscose… It doesn’t feel nice. It doesn’t knit nice. Is it possible that the final product will be nice??? Every day I think about ending its life. I’m telling you if it steps out of line one inch it could be the hacksaw.
Hmmm. What else? Oh yes:
You can’t tell, but there is some pink and some orange in amongst all that red:
I’m at the waist now and changing to solid stocking stitch for the rest. I’ve been told that it looks like a Samoan belly dancer’s tablecloth – perhaps I’m paraphrasing. Thing is, it wasn’t meant as a compliment…in case that isn’t obvious. But I LIKE this one. Even if it does turn out to be total disaster I feel like I have learnt lots from the process.
