Wip Wednesday #8

Progress Report

This last week has been crazy busy (see Monday's post) so I didn't get loads of knitting done. I have made a little and I do mean a little progress on the top.

As I said not much progress but I have changed from size 31/2  to size 4 needles and the pattern is starting to take shape. Here is a close up of the pattern.


I'm quite pleased with how the pattern is coming and I think its fairly neat. I know its not very complex but this is the first pattern I have done so I think it's ok to be a little impressed with myself! The yarn is really nice to work with and feels really nice when knitting with it.

I'm hoping to get more done this week as I have a few days off and for a change nowhere to go. So hopefully next week you will see lots of progress. I will also apologise now as I fear we may all get sick of this top before its over as I think it will take me a long time to finish! Please stay with me, don't leave me alone!!!!

  1. You absolutely should be impressed with yourself. Complexity or not, following a pattern is a skill in itself (one that I'm a bit haphazard about!) It's looking really good :)

  3. It's looking great so far! I really like the texture, and will be happy to keep watching it grow for as long as it takes---a sweater is a big undertaking!

  4. Looking good, clever you. I must add as the recipient of one of the two limited edition pink flower pins ! I absolutely love it, it is so pretty and has been much admired. I have to move it from jacket to jacket as it just goes with everything. Thank you so very much
