I wrote in my last post about my latest knitting project. A week on and it looks like this:
I am pleased with the handling of the yarn and the interesting but easy to knit pattern. There is a problem, however. It is coming up too small, and the ribbing is too tight for the main part of the knit. Hmmmm.
The British summer is well and truly with us. In the UK we have been in the throws of a heatwave. But however warm it may be, it is never too hot to knit.
One particularly welcome aspect of the summer is the arrival of the tennis grass court season. I love to watch tennis at any time of year, but there is nothing to challenge the supremacy of Wimbledon and the grass court tournaments which lead up to it.
I am a very happy bunny when I can knit in front of the tennis, as I was doing with the Aegon Championship last week at London’s Queen’s Club.
I took this opportunity to start a new knitting project. I seem to have been working on scarves/shawls/wraps forever. So I decided to cast on a little cotton bolero in this beautiful cornflower-blue yarn, which I bought from WoolWarehouse – I love the fact that the yarn arrives in this handy organza project bag (and yes, I know, I am easily pleased!).
