A Year of Projects - Week 1
But I have cast on both sleeves for the Blues and have almost finished the required amount of increases! So I have progressed. Blues is going to be a combination of two patterns. I love the look of the Knits 4 Kids (Striped Pullover) in the Woman's Weekly Knittng and Crochet Autum 2009 but don't like the way it's written, so I am using my trusted Sirdar - Simple Easy Knits pattern for the Design A Round Neck Pullover (This is the most amazing and well used booklet I own and highly recommend it to all knitters)and am modifying it to look like it. Make sense?
Also the yarn I am using is not condusive to striping so am just making it solid. I got the yarn at my trusty LYS Arthur Bales, in Linden. In the last Sale they had and honestly can't remember how much it cost. It's an acyrlic but that's fantastic for boys and me as it can be washed in the washing machine! Hayfield Bonus Flash DK.
But have no fears the Silverstone (British) F1 is on this afternoon, which always gets me knitting as fast as they drive around the circuit!
Can't wait to see all your updates tomorrow!
