That's not actually that bad. But, oh boy, 21 things I started and haven't finished yet?
Part of that is that I like one project that I can just motor through - ideal for in front of the telly or the computer. I merrily motor on and get to a difficult bit. That I need to focus on so I won't do nonsense or commit ridiculous mistakes. Always happens when you only half pay attention.
That means that the 'difficult bit stage' items are left to stew in their own juices until I remember that I really want to use that particular project, that I really like it. Then all of a sudden I make major progress.
Very occasionally I also finish something.
That's great, isn't it?
Having said all that: I did finish items and even took some photographs - but I just haven't blogged about them.
Let's make up for that.
My Lotus Flower Sideways Scarf:
The yarn is Ziton Filigran. Unfortunately it doesn't hold the shape well. It relaxes quite a bit which isn't helped by this sideways construction I came up with. The cast-on edge and the bound-off edge were meant to lay in a wavey line but sling it round your neck for five seconds and you can forget about that.
I was hoping I would be able to combine this with lots of outfits, which I can, but I'm still not wearing it all that often. I just prefer other shawls.
The stitch pattern came out of a stitch book, it is called Lotus Flower, hence the project name.
I will try something like this again but will pick a yarn that behaves a little different and I will make sure I get suitable edges by thinking a little more about my cast-on and bind-off.
It was an interesting exercise.
