Here it is. My latest HUGE project.
2013 is a big year for me and I’ll be moving come July to a new home to start a new job in a new career but right now I have no idea where that new home or new job will be, and in all honesty I’ve been feeling a little unsettled. I fell in love with the pattern back when it was released and it sat in my favorites for ages, the fortune of a little spending money from Christmas and the uncertainty of the year ahead made for a perfect combo to get this beautiful blanket into my hands!
Initially i was going to change the colour scheme, but after hours of scouring through colour schemes on Ravelry I decided that to do this blanket justice it would have to be done in the original yarn with which it was intended to be made.
Progress is quicker than I expected, colourwork is so addictive I can easily find myself knitting 7-8 rows in a night. The yarn has a quality which somehow makes colourwork seem effortless……and it’s great watching the pattern come through.
So far I’m just starting the third row of Yowes, hampered slightly by realising that I’d started the wrong yarn which involved unknitting 7 rows….glad I did though as I whilst normally with my knitting I am not overly fussed about little errors (makes it look handmade!!) the colour error would have affected the look of the blanket!
Sure there’ll be a few more posts on this to come – but for now i’m back to the dissertation!
lots of love
