Joke :) There has been a little knitting progress but it's more a case of one step forward and two steps back. Currently I'm on the two steps back. I knitted the first sleeve of Icefields on Saturday (so quick when it's going well and it's dk weight), started sleeve #2 on Monday evening, tried to do some knitting last night - big mistake, I was very tired and kept dozing off mid round. needles near tips. When I'd finished my half hour dozing and picked up my knitting again I found I'd dropped just loads of stitches. Some near the decrease seam, which meant lots more stitches freed up, and odd ones all around the sleeve circumference. The yarn doesn't appear to b a slippery one with running stitches, but that's exactly what has happened. I presume the twisting of the sleeve as I knit has caused these runs, and it's not worth trying to pick up the runs, the knitting is too distorted, Which means tinking. Even then I keep dropping stitches, too impatient! I don't want to try to frog ad it's top down and I've already had the pleasure of reknitting the sleeve stiches on the raglan yoke, when my cable holding the live stitches came apart and I didn't notice for a while...
Not quite in the naughty corner yet but might be soon!
Still no photos. I commute in darkness and by the time I'm ready to take a phoe at the end of the day it's too dark!
In other knitting news I hadve a dk sock on the go, for me. I tend to wear thicker socks in the house (they're a bit too thick for all of my boots though).
I really must knit a few pairs of socks for MrC. I knitted him two pairs ealrier this year (for his December brithday and Christmas) and have lost them, The only thing I can think of is that MrC saw them lying around in the bedroom and thought they had been washed and not put away!
And once Icefields cardigan is finished I intend knitting accessories. We have Knitvent coming up, and the Indy designer KAL on ravelry. Not forgetting the half a dozen cowl patterns I'd earmarked last month!
Time to get casting on!
