Now that Meera’s blanket has finally been finished, I have the chance to move onto the next project I have on the needles.. Ivy
As I think I’ve mentioned before, I have been working on this since around October. I completed the back in November, I think (being the most organised and practical person on the planet *rolls eyes*, I didn’t actually make a note of when I finished it).
I decided to start on a sleeve, because when I read through the instructions for the front panels and decided there was no way I was clever enough, or brave (substitute stupid, if you like) to give this a go without first understanding it.
Well, I finished the sleeve today and most of it was knitted in the last two days. Piccie for your pleasure:
Now seeing as I don’t think I’ve actually taken a piccie of the finished back, I decided it deserved it’s moment of glory too, as well as the sleeve, so I’ve taken a picture of the two together.
I’m chuffed so far.
I think I have to tackle the front panels now.. but before I do ( 🙂 ) I thought I’d do one of the ties first.
The idea is to split up the different parts of the project so that I don’t get bored. So now it’s the first of two ties, then a front panel, then the second sleeve, then another tie and then finally the second front panel… see what I did there?! 😀
Will keep you updated as to progress….
