Knitting a Sweater in 5 days: Good idea?
|Posted by Megan Goodacre on Feb 9, 2012|
Here are a couple of instagram snapshots of something I'm working on. I get to work with Rowan Yarns Savannah, a cotton/silk tape yarn. It has a lovely finished texture, quite pebbly. It makes you want to stand around like a fabulous windswept model on a rocky English beach. (Unlike Rowan's wool blends, which make you want to stand in misty heather).
I've set myself the goal of knitting it in a few days. No problem, no problem. That will be, could be, just fine, as long as I don't make mistakes. But I'm prone to mistakes. Terrible ones. We'll see how it goes. In honour of common mistakes, I've added an article: Knitting Mistakes and How to Avoid Them . I hope that I can follow my own advice.
Oh and that's a crocheted provisional cast on, my favourite kind of provisional cast on. The only one I can remember how to do when I'm in front of the tv and too lazy to google provisonal cast on.
