The joys (and woes) of knitting...

I was getting along, slowly but surely, on my friend's birthday cardi when disaster struck in the form of a broken needle! Luckily, no stitches were dropped, so I secured the ends until I could get some more.


This gave me the opportunity to get started on a cardi an for me. How could I resist a ball (or 10!) of this vibrant green Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK yarn that is currently at a bargain price in Marmalade Yarns. I hadn't a clue what I was going to use it for but I found a lovely little pattern on Ravelry and got started. It was growing nicely when I spotted a glaring error and had to rip back 8 rows. Now if there's one thing I hate about knitting, it's ripping back and picking up the stitches again. There was much muttering and cursing.



Both cardigans need stitch markers and I was struck by the dullness of my plastic ones, and the scrappiness of my knotted cotton thread ones! I decided to cure my knitting blues by making some prettier ones. Two down and I've realised that they are fiddly little so and sos, but I shall persevere and make myself a colourful selection!
