(* WIP = work in progress)
So close, and yet so far!
The knitting is almost complete; the finishing line is in sight for my latest project.
The pattern is Olivette by Sandi Rosner, available via Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/olivette), and the yarn is Drops Lima, a soft alpaca/wool mix in a rich petrol blue, with a subtle strand of green running through it.
This is a stage I often struggle with – it feels as though I need to allocate a block of time to do it properly, and because of that, the finishing gets delayed. But I like the idea that the cardigan will soon be ready to wear. I also love the prospect of creating space in my project bag for … a new project! What an incentive!
Block the pieces, sew the seams, pick up and knit the neck, and add the buttons … Do you like this stage or do you find you put it off?
Dig deep – we can do it!
