Yes! I did it…. Yarn Along…..

What happens when a pattern catches your eye but needs to be reworked to take a change in ply and a slight change of various components into consideration?

Take some pretty pink 8ply I found in my stash – try to reproduce a pretty 4ply pattern along with some minor alterations – and what do you get?  Why you have the (almost) great disaster of last week?

Which you can read about HERE

Patience returned and along with encouragement persuaded me to persevere and sort it out 🙂  Of course they were aided and abetted by desire – the desire to start a new book when I finished. lol

Ginny from Small Things has a weekly meme called Yarn Along which I used to take part in.  Sort of a ‘show and tell’ featuring the knitting and reading you’ve been doing recently.  Do pop over and see what others have been up to.

This week – I’m Back – and I’m showing and I’m telling 🙂

As you can see I did ‘sort out’ the pretty pink baby cardigan/jacket – and my reading for the rest of this week is In Cold Daylight by a ‘new to me’ author Pauline Trowson.  Which is very apt considering how cold it still is first thing in the morning.

    1. thanks for the compliment Sharon. Baby things don’t have many stitches to be worked so hold my attention much longer than boys and girls things do.

    1. Well into it and finished as well Sue. Not a good start to the week, cold again and wet. However we shouldn’t complain. I can knit indoors just as well as I can outdoors. 🙂
