Last week I managed to cast on a new project for myself, intending to knit it during the 10 hour round-trip in the car as we went to London for a few days. I of course forgot to take it, and spent the car ride eating mints and trying not to get too travelsick instead. Oh well. Instead of impressive progress on this, you get to see a couple of nights worth of knitting that doesn’t look like anything quite yet. Behold!
This is the by Sarah Wilson, it’s the second of her patterns I’ve knit and while I’m not a massive fan of the way they’re written I do love the outcome, so that’s what matters. My version is knit in Cascade 220 Fingering, . The pattern calls for sport weight so my gauge is way out but I’ve worked out 福汇官网 that if I knit to the 2X size with some minor modifications along the way it should work out somewhere around the finished dimensions of the size L that I’m aiming for. On top of that, Sarah’s patterns tend to work out too short for me and lots of other knitters, so I’ll be adding extra length as I go.Wish me luck with that.
On the bright side, our trip to London was brilliant. We were there to watch our first ever live NFL game, in which the Miami Dolphins (Boyfriend’s team) well and truly trampled the Oakland Raiders. WEMBLEY SELFIE!
