Started well and I’m particularly pleased with myself at using charts again. I did the set up chart and first repeat of the main chart and then………

For the love of god what am I doing??? I keep making mistakes on the same couple of rows. I must have knitted and redone the last four rows at least 8 times, I’m driving myself slightly bonkers! Trying to remain calm with it and not throw it across the room, but it’s getting close :)

24/10/12 Ok and breathe, it all seems to be fine now. Just completed the second repeat of the main chart pattern. This yarn really is lovely, plump and luscious and the perfect colour for the recipient.

28/10/12 Goodness that cast off took a while! Gorgeous, really pleased, now for blocking…

2/11/12 Washed and now blocking on the lounge floor. It really does grow, which is a relief as I was a tad worried it would be too small :)

8/12/12 Now gifted to Dianne and she really does love it. It’s so lovely to have such a knitworthy friend!
