I’ve completed Winter Project #1 – NOEL letters. That was a fun little knit, but they still need to be made up!
Here’s my second Winter Project, a simple Lace Edging. I wanted to knit something quick and easy, and this little lacy strip was just the thing. I haven’t quite decided what to use it for yet, but I imagine one of the kids will appropriate it pretty quickly!
Winter Project #2 Lace Edging
I have cast on for my February Lady Sweater. Knitted using Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran, on a 4.5mm needle. I actually cast-on a couple of days ago, tried a new buttonhole technique, and then ended up ripping it back a couple of times. Then, when I was finally satisfied with the buttonhole, and made some progress, I realised that there was an early mistake with the increases and, more worryingly, I’d realised that I’d been merrily doing kfb increases, when I should have been alternating kfb with a mirrored kfb. So I frogged the lot.
Beginning with a brand new ball of yarn, I cast on for the second time! My increases are all in the correct places, my button hole is satisfactory, so I reckon I’m good to go. Hopefully I’ll start making some progress now!
