My Juliet, 1/3 done
I love this. It knits up like magic. No sewing up, no picking up of stitches, it's definitely my kind of knitting! I like the colour, which isn't green, for a change! and the yarn isn't too bad to knit up either, remember it's partly sssshhhh..acrylic....but it is wrecking my fingers. It doesn't glide on the needle like a natural fibre, I have to keep pushing it on with my index fingers and I am going to have a permanent reminder of this knit, I think!
Lily tried it on for me last night after the sleeves had been finished and we both thought it would be nice as a little shrug without the bottom lace part. You could even make the fronts wider and put in button holes for a variation on a design. Just a thought! Quick to kit too, which is a bonus.
I'm waiting in this afternoon for Rob's birthday present and the shopping to be delivered. The house is tidy, the irning is done, I have nothing else to do but (hopefully) finish my Juliet!
