Accomplishment 'n Progress
Well, this feels like an accomplishment but of what kind, I can't really say.
There was a dark moment when I realized, two-hours of knitting in, that I had been knitting the pattern backwards. This would be perfect as long as the Stitch 'n Pitch goodie bags include mirrors! Alas, not the case, I had to tear it out, do an hour of yoga, have a cup of tea, eat a biscuit, read a chapter of book, and then start again.
This was, by far, the trickiest part so now I can just have fun with stripes 'n stuff (in the spirit of the event, I am trying to include lots of 'n kind of phrases). I need to make a seat cover in crochet as well but I am not sure my skills are up to doing this pattern in crochet. Is it even possible to do this kind of colour work with crochet?
Maybe just some giant granny squares in Mets colours? I'm serious!
Check out those monster floats! When designing for inanimate objects, it is possible to throw technique to the wind...
