New Year Knit.

Such a pretty pattern.
Started knitting on Sunday night, whilst watching Foyle's War, and have finished 4 complete patterns to date (though I hope to at least get one more done tonight, quite a few knitting hours left….)

New Year, first knitting project…. technically it’s the second, as the cardigan I started on boxing day followed into the new year (to be shown soon). But hay ho, lets just say it’s my first.
Unfortunately this project isn’t the one I wanted to start knitting first. Originally I had intended to knit a lacy 3ply cardigan, in a acid yellow, but do you think I could find the right pattern… no, I blooming well couldn’t, so that’s on hold until this elusive lacy knitting pattern appears into my possession. And to think out of all my knitting patterns, I cannot find perfection- several in two ply and hundreds in double knitting- just no 3ply.
So, in the mean time, I have bought some yellow crochet cotton (in readiness for the summer months) and have started a lacy jumper blouse instead.
It’s knitting up really nicely, if I do say so myself, and I can’t wait until it’s completed (some time to pass until that’s reality) as I have outfits and occasions planned already, don’t you know!

Nighty night all,
Must get back to the old knitting….

  1. Wowie zowie! I wish I could knit. I'll have to just be ok with my sewing for now. How long does it take you to knit?

  2. I am already green with envy! Looks a treat!

  3. Thanks ducks,
    Lolita, it depends on what kind of mood I’m in when knitting, what yarn I’m using and the size of the needles used- this one will probably take some time to knit, maybe a month (?) because the yarn is equivalent to a 2ply and I’m using fairly small needles! To be honest I wish I could sew! Tups x

  4. Looks gorgeous! I'm half way through my very first knitting project that isn't a scarf and love it! I feel very proud...and you certainly should. J xx

  5. Looks beautiful, you must have a lot of patience

  6. That lace is amazing - you're such a great knitter, and that'll be a beautiful summer jumper.

  7. Four patterns, you go girl! This looks stunning, what a lovely design.

  8. I haven't knitted since I was about 12. I wonder if i could pick it up again?

  9. It's looking lovely, I have this pattern in my "To Knit" list, in turquoise. I can't wait to see your finished projects xx

  10. wow, I'm going crosseyed just looking at the pattern it's so delicate lol. It looks lovely though.:-)

  11. What a lovely pattern and super colour!
    I have to say I am really impressed, however do you watch TV at the same time as knitting a lacy pattern!
    If it was me by the Ad break I would be in a pretty pickle!


Ta very much for your messages folks!
