Wip Wednesday #7
Yes that right a new wip! Some of you may have read Monday's post, so this will not come as a complete surprise to you! I have had the secret items as wips but they are not a major project unlike this one! So without further ado here is my first picture
Sorry the photo is rubbish I only had my iphone with me, but you get the idea! Oh my goodness, I just realised I haven't told you what it's going to be (hopefully!) This is going to be my first top, the pattern includes a tie detail at the front and it has quite a simple square pattern 16 stitches in purl 16 in knit! The shape is also quite simple, just a square really. So I am hoping that this will mean I will be able to follow it and get it right! I did phone my mum first, (the pattern is from the magazine Simply Knitting which both my mum and I get) to talk about whether she thought I would be able to do it. She thought it I was going to be fine and we then went over the pattern to make sure I undertood everything. Now onto the yarn, I had already bought the yarn, I just couldn't help it! The pattern said you would need to use Rowan Lenpur Linen and as this is my first big thing I decided to go and buy exactly that. I quite like this yarn, I have never worked with Linen before and it did take a while to get used to it but it's fun working with something different.
So this is as far as I've got this week
Again sorry for the photo! I'm not very far along and please don't expect this is to be finished anytime soon, I am really only going to be working on this in between other things!
So for more wips head over to Tami's blog
