Like I said, I feel quite productive lately — jumping from one project to another. And now, I am a bit infatuated with designs from DROPS. I found them really pretty, but somehow I am not used with the instruction (or lack of) in their pattern. Although to be honest, compared to one from Gosyo, DROPS were incredibly generous.
This is my new project:
It is a cardigan. I don’t knit ones with holes too often, but I found this pretty and I want to get used to charts.
The reason why I am not knitting socks, is mainly because I have offered socks to my sisters and they refused. It is much warmer in Indonesia, so they wear a different kind of socks, mostly made of cotton. Maybe after I found a nice soft fine cotton yarn, I would make a pair for them.
However… Back to my WIP, the lack of instruction means sometimes I have to interpret some of the wording. And I don’t like it, because when it is getting complicated, my lack of experience shows in the work 😦 As a result, I had to do some trial… and error.
And unravelled… I did.
Don’t you just hate it when it happens? Doesn’t it break your heart (and the same time giving you that satisfying feeling) when you had to pull that string of wool and see your work undone stitch by stitch..
