My surprise knitting is coming along well, if slowly. I still can’t post a proper picture or the pattern I’m using as that could easily give it away… but here’s a look at how it’s coming along.
I love how the colors are blending together, and hope that the recipient enjoys it as much as I do. I’m using Miss Babs Yowza in “A Day Pulling Bindweed.”
One thing I’ve noticed in the past couple of weeks is that I’m losing my knitting muscles. Before I went back to work I could knit for 8 hours a day (and did when I was working on my Evenstar Shawl). Now, four weeks later, my wrists, fingers, and arms get tired after just a few rows. I never thought of knitting as something you have to be in shape for, but apparently it is!
In other updates… I’ve put my Lavender Hedgerow into a cake, and it shows the color progression beautifully. I expect it will make a very lovely striped scarf once I decide on a pattern.
Isn’t that beautiful? I’m in love. Now to find a pattern…
