Project Cast on: 10th February 2015


[su_tab title=”Project Progress” ]

Cast on this morning. Knitted one row. Referred to pattern instructions and began Row 2 entirely incorrectly. Tinked. Began Row 2 again. Was interrupted. I have yet to return to it.


As I mentioned this morning, I am unsure of the colours. Luckily the designer provides a handy sheet to colour in. Unluckily, having photographed the yarn and built a colour swatch in Photoshop, I found myself completely unable to fill in between the lines. It looks as though we shall have to go for the experiential approach instead.
