|See other Friday FOs here.|
I must apologize for my absence on this thread... I have been knitting, but it has been hot and I haven't made as much progress due to sweaty hands and bad tempers, but I have good news.....I did it!!!!
I finally finished the Manana sweater! The July 31st deadline for the Classic Elite Yarn Knitalong helped immeasurably. I really want a chance at the prize of $100 worth of knittery goodies!
I think the design of the sweater is aptly named Manana (Spanish translation.... tomorrow) because there were so many times that I said, "That's it! I'll try again tomorrow!". I don't want to discourage anyone from making this pattern, but know that I don't always follow directions successfully, and I am guilty of the inability to "read" where I am in the Waffle stitch 8 row pattern when I have to tink back to a mistake that needs to be done over properly. I have not knit many lacy patterns, and so it is with this disclaimer that I urge you to try this pattern! I love the fit and the color is so delicious.
I have also got good news to report on my Tea Leaves cardigan, no it isn't done just yet, but one sleeve is 3" away from being finished and then I have the front button bands to do. So hopefully by next Friday I will have another FO post and pictures.
