I feel like it's been a while since I've blogged about something I've knitted. I have been knitting feverishly, believe you me, but on a project that is taking my longer than donut, disappointingly. Why must a jumper take so long? I've calculated that if I do ten rows every day, I should be done in two weeks. However, I begun to lose patience with this jumper as it's very repetitive, even for knitting, and decided to give myself a break by doing something smaller. Hello, knitted bracelet.
I saw this pattern by Zoe of Floral and Feather on Leanne's blog Knit me a Cake and instantly fell in love. All the cool kids are wearing sailing knot bracelets at the moment and the idea of making my own for free from some left over wool somewhat appealed. So yesterday, after a failed attempt to start knitting a spontaneous pair of socks that even Dobby would have declined, I put on a new playlist and knitted away.
The pattern calls for double ended needles and knitting in the round but because it was a simple project, I found it was perfect for someone like me who needs the practise in the more fiddley knitting.
Maybe now I will be able to conquer knitting socks. But first, I should probably finish that jumper. Enough procrastaknitting.
