The Week That Was

Just been one of those weeks... I sent the 2 finished cardigans off to their new home last Monday without taking any new photos, doh! But hopefully we may get some nice photos of Daisy and Eliza wearing them to the wedding.

Just been one of those weeks... I go through all my pattern books and magazines, I check through yarns, I scour e-bay, I wander aimlessly around Ravelry, I spend hours looking through the Knitty archive, I go up in the roof to check the yarn suitability up there, I need something to knit.

There is a short list... but the problem with some of the things on the list is either I havent found the 'right' yarn for the project, or I have something suitable but I'm not sure I want to use it yet.

Till I eventually decide that this:


Should become this:


I was never happy with the side seams, so its frogged and I have cast on for Rosedale United from the Knitty archive, almost seamless.

I like the Rosedale United. And guess what? I have 10 skeins of Kureyon I "found" during my studio reorganization. I will have to consider that one!

That does look nice, can't wait to see it.

But I like that sweater....okay, okay....if the side seams are bothering you.

I'm with Bobbi. You are so brave.

Mrs Woman said...

Aye... but Rosedale United looks like it's worth the effort. I feel your pain about the aimless wandering in search of the right yarn and project!

Monica Hansen said...

Can i find you on Ravelry now? Fun!

Charity said...

There is something so satisfying about ripping something... :0)

Oy, but I do love that sweater! But then again, if you weren't happy with it, then ripping it sure was the best thing you could do. The yarn is great, and I love the Rosedale United!
