I have picked up the wavy jumper I started last year. I completed the back just before Christmas but put it down as I raced to finish Christmas gifts. I picked it back up a few days ago and started the front.
Sadly I didn’t read the instructions and went at it like a bull in a China shop. I had read the pattern back when I started but that was weeks ago so I had forgotten wave sequence was slightly different on the front. When I realised I was so annoyed with myself and questioned should I just leave it and carry on regardless or undo it???
The jumper is for me but I would know and it would annoy me so I have spent the morning frogging and picking up stitches 😕
I have completed the pieces for the Guernsey jersey and done the neck but then I put it down. As I think I have said before I am not a fan of sewing up and pressing. The Guernsey is second size as the little boy will be 2 months when he gets his gift. From my point of view the deadline is mid February so it will probably stay in the knitting bag until then and then it will be a mad dash to finish….
I have made a couple of baby beanies (whilst avoiding sewing up the Guernsey )! The blue one is for the same little boy, the pink one is for the baby shower at the end of February.
I have just used stocking stitch on the beanies which gives that nice little roll on the rim and then just a bit of shaping for the top.
And 🎈🎈🎈🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾 celebration time I have only used yarn from my stash. There have been no crafting temptations this week so I still have money in my purse 😆
My first post of the year. I have been doing a bit of procrastination – always a bit like that after the fun and frolics of Christmas and New Year! Well to be honest I really like everything going back to normal. I am a creature of habit and really like routine!
I have given up making resolutions as I never stick to them so why set myself up to fail?
However, while waiting for my son to come out of school yesterday I did make a few lists :
– wavy jumper
– baby blanket
– baby jumper
– Age UK Big Knit
– Shoe Box Appeal
– Cardies for premature babies
– Gift for a little boy (mid Feb)
– Baby Shower (end Feb)
CHRISTMAS CRAFT STALLS
– aim items that can be given as gifts
SKILLS TO LEARN/IMPROVE
Strangely I have not listed anything about losing weight or getting fitter. As I said earlier why set myself up to fail, especially this early in the year.
