I chose a swatch knit from the book Nordic Knit by Eline Oftedal then fashioned a camera case out of it, ever functional me. My bessie bought me the book for Christmas and she doesn't knit so much now so I suspect she thinks I am better than I really am hence the new years resolution.
It is a beautiful book and has been lounging on the coffee table since December looking all Scandinavian and inviting.
OK so it is not a jumper obviously but I really enjoyed a knit that was challenging enough to keep me looking. Even the mattress stitch join on the back pleased me. The yarn is the leftovers from my crochet bag here. King Cole Merino from Minerva.
Big things grow from small seeds so I will see where this takes me over the next few years - maybe I will get that ski jumper one day.
Can anyone signpost me to anything else easy to break me in?
Thanks for looking. Jo x
