It’s in a stitch with lots of knits and purls on each row so I can’t get up any real speed. The pattern pieces are straightforward and easy- I usually like a bit of a challenge. It’s also in a larger gauge yarn than the original pattern so it’s coming up quite big. Baring in mind I nearly always make the smallest size for myself, I feel a little like I’m knitting are marquee.
And I can’t even show you pictures of what I’m doing. 🙁
So how much have I done?
I’ve done all of the back and all of the front (or is that “fronts”?? 😉 ) and I’m now onto the first sleeve.
The sleeve is very full.
It’s at least as big as the back.
And there’s two of them to get through!! Arghhh! 😯
I really, really want to finish off poor Hildegard who has been temporarily abandoned with only a sleeve to go but I daren’t. I’m still a one WIP girl at heart and if I pick up Hildegard I may not come back to Top Secret in a hurry.
Something else occurred to me too.
I’m something of a “Product Knitter” or a “Completer Finisher”. I drive myself on with the boring bits because I want to see and have the finished object. With sample knitting, I knit the bits and post it off without sewing it up. OK- So some of you out there would love that idea but I don’t mind the sewing up!
I may never see my finished baby!
Can you sense, readers, that I’m beginning to regret volunteering? I’m sure I’ll feel differently when I see my name in the book.
I’ve made a commitment so I must see it though.
There’s only one thing for it.
Put on another DVD of Babylon 5 , grit my teeth, drink a pint of coffee so I’m hyperactively knitting and get it done!
