Right, we've got the new computer up and running and I can get back to blogging, although if I'm going to be honest we got the computer going last week but I have been so busy with fun runs and going away for weekend and life that I haven't had a moment to get organised. As well as updating the blog, I need to update my Ravelry projects and stash and it all seems a little overwhelming. So, today I am going to catch you up on what I'm knitting now, and then over then next couple of days I'll tell you about what I finished while I was away and then we will be all caught up.
I'm knitting Summer Solstice by Heidi Kirrmaier, out of bamboo/cotton yarn left over from Leon's jumper The actual knitting has been fine, but it is one of the strangest written patterns I have used. At one point there were four different increases and decreases going on on different rows. Anyway I like how it's turning out BUT she said if you don't want the edges to roll, do three rows of reverse stocking stitch and I think it looks a bit stupid on mine, although having just spent half an hour looking at other peoples, maybe it will look good, post blocking.
I should have done a folded hem on the bottom and if I still don't like how this sits at the bottom after blocking I'll work out how to remove the bottom rows, despite have picked up colour stitches from the edges, and do it again. Putting that aside I'm quite excited about this cardigan, it should be a very wearable, practical garment
