Way back in August last year I started a knitting project. . . The first project was a hat for my daughter which I finished.
The next thing I started was a 'Winter Cape' for me.
I didn't buy the wool suggested (I know what your thinking WHY?,Well the wool shown was expensive. If I start a project thinking I 'overspent' I don't enjoy it.)
So I started the knitting knowing I would have to adjust the pattern. I'm not very good at this!!
Everything was going well, But I couldn't try it on as my needles wouldn't fit around my body!!
I showed a few people as I went along, asking how long should I make it? They all kept saying 'OOh I'd knit a bit more'
So I just kept knitting. . . .
Finally I cast off and tried it on. . . . .
It was about two months worth of knitting too long, ooh b#gg#r
So I marked where the excess was then carefully pulled it back.
Then ever so carefully picked up the stitches. (it was very tense)
So I redid the rib around the bottom and cast off. I was obviously still pretty tense, because the cast off was tooo tight. So once again I took it back.
Its finished, have I worn it? No
Do I like it? Not sure.
Will I make another? No
Will I listen when people tell me to just keep knitting? NO
