After yesterdays marathon of sewing, attempting to do the trouser challenge, I wasn’t much up for getting my machine out and starting a new project. I especially wan’t up for working quickly.
Then I looked outside and saw the glorious sunshine and a bright idea (no pun intended) popped into my head. So I bundled myself up, made myself a cup of coffee and heading into the garden with my knitting.
Over the last week I haven’t had much time to knit, and had only added two rows since I last updated my Knitting Diaries. Also as the rows are getting longer, its taking much more than my previous 20 odd minutes per set (I refer to 1 row adding stitches and 1 row purl as a set – is there a proper knitting term for it?). So today, basking in sunshine I was quite pleased to do I think 4 more sets. That took me a wopping almost three hours (though I did stop for multiple sips of coffee and had to recount a few times cause I got distracted).
In the end I called it a day when my fingers got cold enough that I was dropping stitches. No matter, its now progressing at my usual snail pace (which after yesterday doesnt bother me in the least) plus I got to enjoy the sunshine!
