One must have some woollies

It’s has become quite apparent as of late that I have several different levels of productivity when it comes to knitting. Sometimes I will churn out the woollens at great speed and other times I will have a bout of not being able to even get past the ribbing. These disastrous ‘Episodes’ can diminish and halt my production line output completely making me quite miserable and destroying all faith in the craft ……. (Well, only until another new pattern captures my imagination). I usually end up flinging the needles and wool in any direction away from the misery (me) with great frustration. Does this sound familiar?

At a time when my latest knitting endeavours seem to go to pot as soon as I start them, I thought now would be a good time to reflect on some of my victories.

The first being from the mid thirties (?) knitted it in two ply cotton. I nearly went mad doing the 5 1/2 inches of ribbing on no. 13 needles. In the end I decided against the collar as I thought it dated the jumper too much.

The second being a rather yummy sun top that I had to make smaller from 1939. I would really like to do another in the original colours stated on the pattern. Oh and I must get round to making the proper straps!

Hope you like them…… now I must get back to my latest creations!
