Ok – maybe not speed knitting as such.. more like “butt numbing”, dogged determination to finish the projects LOL
This first project: Eowyn Wristlets was knit with some stash yarn that I bought at a yard sale. It turned out pretty good and was fairly easy to work with. I am in love with cables now though…. ruh roh. Anyway, the second wristlet is not a perfect knit – I was trying to get the cables to go in the other direction and so reversed what the pattern called for.. yeah I’m a novice, I should have followed the pattern. But I learned a lesson and the gloves are useable so no harm done. (I have been known to complete a project and then rip it apart and redo it because it wasn’t quite right – mostly when making sweaters.)
This second project: Fringe Scarf …OOooooooo loving it! The pattern just called for the standard k2, p2 row 1 and p2 k2 row 2 —- which looked great with this bulky yarn. But I wanted to dress it up a bit and practice my crochet skills. I embellished it with a first row of hdc at both ends and down one side. That looked fine but wasn’t quite enough “ruffle” so I turned and did 2 hdc in each chain on the way back. It’s just the right amount for me but others can add more if they wish. Yes that’s me modeling the scarf and I look weird because I hate being in front of the camera. That’s fear and discomfort you see in my eyes. heh heh
At present, I am working on Fringe Fingerless Gloves to match…. 🙂
I have no idea which project I’m going to tackle after those. My pattern magazines are well thumbed.
Maybe I should pull out the yard stash first and work from that direction rather than the other way around.
I have never been known for doing things the easy way, but life is always interesting.
Hope your day is interesting too.
