On Librivox we currently have a special rules knitting project. We’re recording Exercises in Knitting by Cornelia Mee, but not only are we recording it we’re also knitting the patterns from the book and translating them to modern day pattern speak. I decided to do the Knitted Bodice pattern, as it’s a fairly simple one to follow, and handily I had a big ball of horribly bright red acrylic that well.. it wasn’t going to be used for anything else really. I actually managed to get a LOT of it done, and then.. well then November came, then I decided to knit Juno Regina, and I knew that that would take a lot of time and so I didn’t really have time for any other projects.
And here, here is where I’ve hit problems, I just can’t be bothered to get back to it. Its cheap acrylic, its not nice to knit with, also its pretty much ALL stockinette stitch, so its horribly horribly boring. It’s also TINY, me and my mum figure it would have to be a child’s garment, cause there is no way I can see it fitting a fully grown woman. It’s DK (i think) wool, knitted on 3.25mm needles.
But yet I only have 40 rows left? So not that many when you consider I’ve already knitted around 140 rows already. I have no excuses! If i can just force myself to knit a minimum of 2 rows a day. I’ll get somewhere.. I HAVE to make myself do that, I have to finish this thing!
So for those of you who read this blog, (if any?) you have my permission to bug me into making sure I get this FINISHED!!
