My goodness, I hadn’t planned on a hiatus but nevertheless, I haven’t written anything for a long time. A couple of years ago, I picked up this yarn Briggs and Little Regal, I think, in Ontario, made a sweater of my own design that was just OK and worn only once or twice. So this year I took it apart.
I thought I’d have a finished project by now but no, I don’t. I started Miss BB by Bonnie Marie Burns, the link is in ravelry, in mid October and knit in the car, something new for me and I had gotten quite far along on the two sleeves. I then did part of the fronts and then the back and then I worked on the fronts again. Sounds complex. I think I have to have a ponder when I run into something new in the pattern. Some of the cabled areas, I started several times, something wasn’t quite right, sometimes I thought they looked great until the next day. I didn’t fix every goof up! Two in particular became just my own little quirks to the pattern. I think the pattern is well written, I think I skip words, make assumptions and then goof up.
Then a couple of days ago I was done, cast off even.
As I folded the shawl collar into position, I once again discovered something. The cable was facing the wrong direction. Actually the wrong side was facing out.
So last night once again, I gave it a mighty try and it is now done. It is blocking now, so it could possibly be finished this week. Snow is on the mountain, looks like I will need it soon.
