Bitchy Little Sweater

Thursday, July 10th, 2003

While I was sitting on the sofa weaving in the ends of CDS, the Aran sweater was looking at me. Making sad eyes in my direction, it bemoaned the lack of attention it’s been getting lately. “Look, I’m working. It’s just a small project and I’ll be done with it tomorrow. Just sit tight, okay?” […]

Needles want to be free

Thursday, July 10th, 2003

CDS is off the needles! Whoopee! I’ve been neglecting the little purple mass of love – it really should have been done and wrapped last weekend.

The piece was constructed by “mindless knitting” – garter stitch, but with random bits of stocking, seed and moss stitch interspersed. The […]
