I have to force myself to get better at blogging, I really do. So.. wow my last actual knitting post was in 2008, and hmm in some ways I can quite easily catch up with my knitting, seeing as I haven’t actually finished that much in the last year. Working has meant I haven’t had as much time to finish things off. So I shall get started:
So I had some stripy yarn, and I figured what would be a better pattern then something like Jaywalker, a good way to show off the strips in the yarn. I have to confess that it’s taken me a stupid amount of time to finish these… I may have started them in… Feb of ’09 and… have only just finished them well, last month. >_< The pattern isn’t hard or anything I just, did work on them no good reason really. Second Sock Syndrome. This is why the heels of both socks are a little off, but no one is really going to see that I think.
Whoops… I just looked through my list of previous posts, my last post on Lilly was at the beginning of 2009. Um… it’s still technically not finished… I haven’t blocked it. (How rubbish is that!) I have no excuse.
Such a fun and quick knit, and the yarn is so lovely and squishy! May well knit another one of these one day.
Yarn: Cascade Yarn
This was quite a fun knit, a little awkward in places, especially when picking the stitches up for the tentacles. It did also break one of my knitting needles:
Which was easily fixed by super glue. there is however a slight chip in the needle now, so I may need to get another set at some point. I can live with it for now.
