I guess it is peer pressure.
I thought I could make up my own mind about what I would like to do.
I guess I was wrong.
It didn't take too much arm twisting.
After all, they are my friends, and the people I like to hang out with to indulge in my favourite activities.
"We'll do this when we meet up on Monday. You can do it too."
Yes, I gave in. (Eventually).
So this is what I am doing, and (sob sob) it has taken over my life !!!
It's not that I havent done much knitting in the past, I did heaps when I was younger and lived in cooler climates.
It's not that I have nothing else to fill my time, its just that I have enough projects on the go already.
Anyway, I am working away at it. Talk about reverse knitting. I think I could have done twice as much if I didnt do so much reversing.
It is one of those free patterns from the store, hanging there to encourage you to pick it up and then go buy the requirements.
But the instructions are very sparse. There are odd mistakes in it - not a lot but you need to keep your wits about you and work around them.
Anyway we will see in a while just how this project goes.
I HAD been firing through some embroidery in the evenings, now that is put aside and this knitting thing has taken over.
Still, I can sit HERE and work away comfortably. (our lounge chairs have higher armrests and it is awkward trying to knit while sitting in them, so what a good thing I now have my marshmallow cane chair.)
