I love knitting. Sometimes I even do it.
Stormsvale is coming along. Not quickly, mind, but coming along nonetheless.
At first I was going to use the super expensive norwegian yarn, but in the end I went for Cleckheaton Country 8 ply and a little Panda Colour 4 me.
The Country is a lovely glossy, sturdy workhorse yarn that enhances the subtlety of the herringbone stitch really well.
I have found it very difficult to keep track of the shaping without biasing the stitch pattern, the instructions seemed counter-intuitive to me, but in the end I just did what I was told and it's working okay.
The fair-isle at the waist was such a pleasant diversion - it's a shame it's all plod plod till the neckline now.
Not a lot else active on the needles right now that I can talk about - but I've an itch to knit me something RED.
