Tyred of Knitting? (and a Giveaway)
I've been working on a new pattern for the last few weeks. But I have got past the initial phase, when it is exciting, and it is now a bit of a slog.
Sorry about the terrible pun in the title. I am not really tired or even tyred of knitting, just this particular project. Knitting cable with black wool and quite small needles is not easy. It would be all too simple to put it aside for a while, but I am going to keep going. I have already put so much work in it would be a shame to give up.
Needless to say, these wheels, which seem to have taken me ages, are too big. They are going to have to be unpicked and reworked. Can you guess what the new knit is?
Perhaps I will change this post from a moan to a GIVEAWAY. If you guess accurately (no just saying a vehicle, you have to be a bit more precise) I will put you in a draw for two of my Blue Sparkly Christmas Hearts. You can see them in my shop here. You can leave your guess on my blog or facebook page. No restrictions on where you live, anyone can enter. Closing date 5th November, which I hope will give me enough time to finish the pattern. Good luck!
