And here, as promised, is branching out.
She is knit in Crystal Palace Kid Merino and is very very very fiddley. VERY. I had to knit 3 repeats in cotton DK before i was confident that i could do it, and even now im sure there are a few boo-boos. I probably wont notice them all until i block it... and at that point i dont think i will care. I am enjoying it, but i do not use row counters with lace and it's a hard one to knit at erratically (or while watching tv) which is me all over. However, i salute knitty for this one.
I also managed to find Vogue Knitting in Canberra! Am sooooo excited, but they are of course all Autumn patterns. This is bad because today was a little cool and i was tempted to start this awesome purple sweater... but i'd get halfway through the backpiece and it would be 30 degrees here and it would lie in the land of forgotten knitwear until i decided i hated the yarn/colour/style and got rid of it. Yes, i am a prophet. I also love this little vest, and am wondering if i could do it in cotton and wear with a pencil skirt or jeans this summer. Hmmmm.
I subscribed to Creative Knitting a month ago and am currently awaiting the October issue. Impatiently, desperately with bated breath type waiting. I hit the floor running when i hear the mail-man! Remember that Beatles song?
