Night shift - in vain!

I was so keen last night to have the pima sweater done - I stayed up till three in the morning to put it all together. lovely, I put it on for a quick look - and knew immediately that it didn't work the way I wanted it to:( but at that stage I was too tired to take it apart, even less able to frog! so I did it this morning and after taking the neck "rib" (is there a neck "wave"?) off, I ripped out a few rows and tried again. great, this time it looks the way I wanted it to - so another project ticked off the to-do-list. and to avoid the dreaded "this one finished, what should I do next" part - I immediately started to sample the ramie - only to find out, that I don't like the look of it at all for the planned top:(( well, two good ones in one day - would be too much to ask for, wouldn't it? slightly miffed (have to think about it - either a different yarn, the tussah silk maybe - or another project altogether?) I wanted a treat - and finally started the socks in Regia bamboo yarn, colour "passion". feels nice, works well - no danger there, so I'll do the socks first - and meanwhile I think about the other plans.

Hi Bettina,

nice to "find" someone else in this corner of the world, who loves the "fibre arts" too. You're definetely "caught" in my bloglines :-)

Great blog Bettina. Your knitting is amazing.

That's my kind of knitting; working on one project while planning the next. I'm glad the pima sweater didn't require a lot of work to correct it!
