At last! I can’t believe how long it takes me to knit something. Even seemingly simple somethings. Case in point: the Hitchhiker Scarf. When you start out, the rows fly off the needles so quickly, and then about halfway through you begin to realise that things have slowed down. By the time you’re two-thirds in, those rows are taking a helluva long time to complete.
No, I didn’t time it – because that would just be… demotivating, shall we say. Anyway, the No.2 Hitchhiker I began back on 5 February is finally complete, and I likes it a lot.
Next on the needles is this lovely sweater (Cultivated Vines), purchased from e-patternscentral.com, with Naturally Haven 4ply merino yarn in nearly the same shade.
Wish me luck – this is only the second garment I’ve ever knitted. Must go – I’m knitting a gauge swatch. Apparently they’re important…
