The air has been a bit blue this week because the Lush cardigan went a bit wrong (I’ve been home alone as the children have been at school and pre-school and I’ve not had work!)
I’m also a fibber as it didn’t just go a bit wrong, I had to frog it back to above where the sleeves start. I’d begun picking up stitches for the sleeves, but I hadn’t darned in the ends where I’d started again after the cast off parts and so I accidentally pulled a thread and undid some stitches and could not for the life of me fathom how to sort it.
Yesterday I had a marathon knitting session and now only have about 4 inches of the back left to work. When I knitted the underarms this time, I purled two together two minimise holes and then immediately did an increase. I also darned in the ends under the arms. It does look far neater and hopefully when I finally get to the sleeves I will make a neater job of it!
I am also working to a deadline as I’m hoping I will finish this by next Friday! Fingers crossed, it is my only WIP currently so all of my attention is focused on it.
I’m just adding a little update on a past WIP as I delivered it to it’s handsome new 8 day old owner today. The beautiful shells blanket has a new home!
What are you working on this week? Hopefully you’re having more success than me! (There is a FO Friday post in the pipeline so keep an eye out for it.) Please share what you’re up to.
