In my quest to make 2006 the Year of Finishing, I haven’t started any new projects except for socks since Tubey. So now that Tubey is done, I’ve been working here and there on both Lisette, and Elfin. But it occurred to me yesterday, the first day of Spring (despite last night’s frigid temps , Man was it cold walking Ty last night) that both those sweaters, being of dark colors and wool content, really wouldn’t be worn when done. At least not till Fall.
So I put them temporarily aside.
This cotton lace monstrosity was long forgotten, to the point that when the pattern was messed up due to increases and decreases, I didn’t even bother to work it out again. Well, I picked it up a few days ago. And figured out the strange number of stitches I had and how to get the lace back on track. And despite the fact that there are mistakes in it (mostly on the sides and hopefully not very visible in the end), I’ve decided to make this my main Spring project. It’s got a long way to go, I’m barely up to the armholes on the back, but I’m determined. Maybe I can get some wear out of this before summer. At least in air conditioning.
So what if pink/green combos are So Last Year? (or in my case, TWO years ago?)
