So last night and this morning—I was hard at work finishing up the Fruity cowl.
It’s a good reminder of why my Ravelympics project has a knit in place border!
This border is endless. Last night I reached the half way point, and stopped and pinned it out for photo—it really does look pretty—the striped lace echo’s the striped pattern of the body nicely. But it goes on and on.
This morning, picked it up again, and knit on the morning train—and got another 15 % or so knit--I have more than 1/4 of the stitches on side 2 (second half) done. (or more than 1/8 of the total--and 1/8th is 12.5%.)
I might finish it one day—it is quite pretty (and I would like to have those needles back in circulation!) Maybe I’ll find a photo and blog about it (instead of blogging about my current project.
Part of the problem is, it is a very warm sweater. And I so rarely need or want a very warm sweater! But I should finish it. I mean too... but.
That is one of the problems with UFO’s (vs. Wips) you loose interest in them.
The spark of an idea grew to a fire, and then suddenly the fire went out. Now the idea is ashes— and I will need to re-kindle interest to get it finished.
By the time I was over the flu—the Olympics had ended, and the sweater was still sleeveless. By the time I thought to pick it up again, and get to work--Spring and warm weather was arriving and the heavy warm sweater had no appeal what so ever.
But is still like the idea of it.
The hyacinth socks keep insisting I should be working on them. (I am ignoring them… but I don’t want to!)--but I did work on a draft of the pattern--not just thinking but actually figuring out how many stitches, and how many rows of cuff, and the cuff pattern, and all the other details.
