December is also a time to finish a project or two. This year, I picked up the my first attempt at knitting a sweater without a pattern from seven years ago. I had knit the body using a beautiful Noro yarn and then I reached a point where my required knitting skills need not match my actual knitting skills.I set it aside for the passage of time.
This winter I picked up that sweater, from another time. Filled with memories and ready to add with new ones. I read the stitches and saw what little tips have I have picked up since I last put down this sweater. Knit on to completion!
|December- A time for things to come to an end, a journey in time with a sweater instead of a tardis|
- Change over yarns at the end of a row when you are starting a new ball. (simple but effective!)
- Letting go of trying to control the tension when grafting. I had seamed the tops of the shoulders too tight!
It still needs a little tweaking, a little longer sleeves with a thumb-hole....
Any tips that you have recently picked up that has helped you on your knitting journey?
