|Frogging is no fun - but so are projects that will never be anything other than annoying..|
That 80s shaping Rauma still is doing, just kills a lot of their designs. You actually cast on stitches, knit the rib and then increase stitches.
|Rosendal, my new project will be a jacket from that pattern.|
I started out trying to get the pattern to fit what I wanted.
But after a lot of knitting and the realisation that a raglan and a yoke combined will make the whole finishing a disaster, I lost all interest.
It has been lying around and I have been searching for a new project for those dashing colors.
I have always wanted to knit a jacket from the 90s again.
This time in colors that will suit me and do the pattern justice. Back then I chose the colors in the pattern. The shop had absolutely no knowledge of colors - nor dit I - so I went for the safe choice. The one that makes me look older, sick and grey. No more of those grey colors - life is too short for that.
Anyway, I am actually excited about a new project and that is a long time ago I was just that. I am determined to knit raglan and have no idea how I will do that. But I start knitting and that will sort out in the end. I hope!!!
One step back doesn´t mean you are defeated, it only means you´re
going to take the same step forward again, but this time wiser
