After stitching a lot lately I have decided to flirt with knitting again, at least as an evening and late night recreation. The stitching will not be forgotten just saved as a daytime and daylight activity.
I have wanted to knit this jacket since I saw it. I can’t remember anymore where I first saw it, but it was six and half stitches’ altering of it by adding fabric to the jacket that convinced me I had to make one. Now that Astrid is here with us I have someone to knit it for too (I would have loved one for myself, but I look terrible in horizontal lines).
My biggest struggle and challenge when I knit is not the knitting technique. If I see a video on how to do a certain thing whether it is purl, knit two together, slip stitch and so on I usually manage to do it. My struggle is to understand the patterns and instructions. I simply don’t know the knitting language, and that frustrates me. A lot.
With this jacket I am only happy not frustrated. I have read through the instructions three times and so far so good. I think I know what I need to do. Let’s see how it turns out.
I am knitting with Drops Karisma (100% wool) and 4mm circular needles.
