How many times do I have to be told??

Don’t. Knit. Tired!

Because I always end up doing silly things like this:

I missed the knit stitches between two cables, and didn’t even notice until I got to the next cable round. I do so wish I’d noticed earlier because this yarn does NOT like to be tinked. That was a painful four rounds.

But it’s all sorted now and I’m on to the home stretch of ribbing. I really can’t wait to get this finished so I can snuggle up in it at my desk while I’m working.

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!
