This is supposed to be a happy post where I report on my knitting progress, but somehow everything went really wrong.
This is the (supposed to be) first part of Greta (my light green Orangina)
I've started the back too, then I realised that it is WAY TOO BIG (19" across! I might be big, but not THAT big, and cotton stretch!). Okay, I have to admit that I realised it 15" ago. I had choices, just keep on knitting and got an Orangina T-shirt, or dive the frog pond. I made my choice, and here it is
That's just 2" of the back, I don't have the heart to frog the front yet. I was knitting with 2 strands of DMC Petra on #5 bamboo. It turns out surprisingly nice, but not-so-surprisingly heavy. I swear that my straight needles are not so straight anymore! I think I'll start all over again and knit another swatch with single strand and smaller size needle. Then I'm going to knit it 1 or 2 repeat smaller, can't decide yet. So I guess I'll be the last one to finish in the KAL.
Here's another WIP that I haven't been showing here. I name her Gabby (Notice that I started naming my projects? It feels like naming my own children! Not that I would know how it feels, but I suppose it is). Here she is...
I was knitting one of the strap when I tried her on. And guess what? The bust was too big!! I'm moving 5" downward and am currently trying to pick up stitches(230++!) again. Then I'll start from the bust part, no more increasing this time. She is the one I mentioned before, the one that's knitted using Jaeger Siena and #3 needle. Does anyone notice that I stole the lace pattern from Soleil? What do you think?
So, I'm moving downwards while everybody are moving upwards. Wonder if I'll ever get my WIPs done...
Note: 57 more skeins of yarn coming soon!
Note 2: 9 days till Harry Potter 6 release!! 11 days till I'm 18!!
