"Hate Purple"

14 Feb 2005

"Hate Purple" Posted by Hello
Eliza by Rowan is finished.

I have frogged and re-knitted the sleeves three times. I have unpicked and re-sewed the seams three times. I'm still not so happy with the seams and may unpick and re-sew them again.
But the most frustrating thing is that I have to wait until Spring issue of knitty to find out how to 'pick up and knit' along a curved edge. Until then, the neck remains crocheted.

What did the gorgeous model say when I asked her to put it on? "Hate Purple". Of course you do darling. After all, you chose the colour yourself. This mothering business is such a thankless task.

Mustn't grumble. Tomorrow I shall share my progress in the neverending Clapotis yarn search. I may just have to bite the bullet and order the Lion & Lamb from America.

In the meantime I am endlessly knitting side-to-side in garter stitch trying to make a long cross-fronted jackety thing out of snippets of a pattern, snippets of a picture and an idea of my own. I will let you know how it progresses, but until it looks a bit more presentable she stays under wraps.

Did someone say Valentines' Day?
