WIP Wednesday 18.04.18

Current WIP count: 6

I hit a bit of a snag with my Tunisian jumper, which serves me right for not reading the pattern fully before I started. I thought the section I’m working on now was the whole body piece, and I calculated the number of rows of each colour accordingly. Turns out this section only goes up to joining the sleeves and there’s a whole other section for the yoke.

So I had to frog aaaaaaall the way back to the first colour combo, leaving me with this.

Oh well, next time I will definitely remember to read the whole pattern first!

I’ve also been playing around with cables on a super duper simple cowl, using my favourite Lion Brand Landscapes colourway.


It looks like a skirt right now because my circulars are so small, but trust me it’s a cowl!

I could really do with a row counter for this so I don’t have to keep going back and counting them manually every time I lose track, but hey, first world problems! It’s just a bit of fun for myself to practise my cabling, so I’m not terribly bothered if I go a bit wrong.

So that’s my WIPs for this week. What’s everyone else working on? Having a good week now the cold has finally naffed off? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I hate when that happens (not reading the entire pattern. Just finished a shawl where I did not read the entire pattern and was confronted with lace charts to finish. Good news is that I now read charts! That lion brand is FABULOUS! Good luck on your Tunisian.

  2. Looking good 🙂 its so lovely to see the tunisian grow, even if you had to frog it. I am glad its getting nicer out, but i feel as though spring has gone awol. Whwre I am it went from winter coats to shorts and a vest top in only 1 week!

    1. After another weekend of nothing but Outlander and crochet, I’ve just passed where I got up to last time!
      We’ve had one day of shorts weather so far this year. That was probably our summer :p


  3. I love the colours in that cowl 😍 and I feel so sad for you about the sweater, but you’ve been smashing it so I’m sure it will grow back in no time

  4. Shame you had to rip it back! I guess a lesson learned. I am guilty of not reading patterns right through sometmes, always in a hurry to start a new project. I learned my lesson a few years ago when I was working on a pattern translated from another language, not written the way I was accustomed to. I gaily knitted along then at the end of a huge section I read ‘at the same time, do x’ – of course I hadn’t read that part and hadn’t done ‘x’ at all. Oops!
