Yay! For the first and possibly last time ever, a self-imposed knitting deadline has been met with more than a few hours to spare! In fact, my birthday present to myself is complete more than three whole weeks before my birthday!
No modelled pics yet, but it fits. It actually fits, it’s long enough and wide enough and everything! Goes round my hips, covers my bit of podgy tummy, feels a lot nicer than the yarn did when I was knitting it, basically it’s awesome and I’ll be wearing it every day until my actual birthday (maybe slight exaggeration, but only a bit). To make matters even better, YARN DELIVERY!
There’s technically now no more room for yarn on my designated yarn shelves. Now that the Gemini Top is complete, there are hardly any WIPs left for me to get sorted out. The only ones remaining are things that, to be honest, I can’t really be bothered with anyway. Therefore there was only one logical conclusion, and that was to
get some work done on my own patterns cast on a second birthday present to myself and use up some of that new yarn .
Next week, if my calendar isn’t wrong, is Knitting & Crochet Blog Week 2014. So prepare for an onslaught of barely thought out posts every day for a week, you’re welcome.
