Back and Forth

Back and forth, I'm making progress on my cardigan fronts. At one stage I thought I'd just knit in the evenings, but it would be very slow if I did that. With 4 ply yarn and 3 mm needles, progress is necessarily slow. I told myself yesterday that I have no need to feel guilty about working on just one project instead of several!

  1. You're zooming along! - but I must admit the thought of the steeking you wrote about in your earlier post horrified me! They always say that if you are using variegated yarn it's best to knit alternate rows from two balls - spreads the variation.

    1. I'm thinking of doing that on the sleeves.

  2. Sometimes focusing on a single project gets you in a rhythm, and it goes even faster :-) Looks lovely & hope you have plenty of yarn to override the bad ball.

  3. Absolutely! Sometimes it's necessary to focus on one project. It's looking great!

  4. Shoe the guilt away. You finish knitted items far quicker than I. It looks lovely and I'd take the bad ball back to the shop.

    1. Trouble is, I bought it on a trip to Johannesburg, 600 kms away. I don't plan to go back there any time soon.

  5. I am happiest focusing on one at a time. My work always seems to suffer if I have too much going on at one time.

  6. Less chance of mistakes when concentrating on only 1 project!! :)
