Well, it must be Spring because the cat has started leaving half-eaten rabbits outside the back door on a daily basis, but you’d never guess it from the weather. All it has done for the last few days is rain and the ground is already sodden from a mild, wet winter. All the more excuse to stay in, start a blog and try to make progress with the gansey sweater I am knitting. I have knitted “2014” above the welt so I really do need to get it finished this year.
I reached the yoke (the patterned band across the chest) yesterday, after 2 months, and now have the
challenge fun of working out how to do the underarm gussets. I only get chance to knit in the evenings during the week and, thank goodness, there is still some daylight now that the clocks have gone forward to British Summer Time – navy blue 5-ply yarn is not easy to knit on size 13 (2mm) needles in artificial light.
