Happy 2017 to you all.
It has already been a pretty busy year, with 2016 WIP’s now being completed firstly before I allow any new WIP’s to make their way onto my needles and hooks.
The first one out the door for 2017 is Wilhelmina. She is a cute vintage looking little green bear, and I am happy that I finished her during the holidays and she gets her special place now.
Then my green Rowan Summer Tweed Sweater. We have had a very rainy weekend, and I took great advantage of it and worked on this sweater. The drape is lovely, but I did not get good or proper tension on the yarn at all. I don’t think this is a yarn I would use again, definitely not for a knitted item. I’ve done the hems and even added the buttons. It just needs the collar and then it is done. I can still wear it in the Fall days, when we have the odd cold day.
And then on 1 Jan 2017 I made the decision to Frog! Yes, I actually frogged this blanket I was working on. It has now been nearly 18 months in progress, and despite the fact that I love this pattern, it is not going anywhere, at least not fast enough. It will still be a blanket, and I hope to restart it in a pattern that I will knit up faster, and who knows, maybe even have a blanket pretty soon.
All the best to you all for 2017.
