I got a bit of a fright when I realised that I had 8 projects on the go, so on Sunday night, instead of forging ahead with my Mariah sleeve, I pulled out the Alene Camisole, and finished it. There was no knitting to be done, just sewing up the straps, making a casing for the elastic (under the bust), putting in the elastic, making a cord, and then darning in the endless ends. Fiddly stuff. But I did it, and it's finished, and it's even nice to wear!
Dotter is modelling this for me - her bust is much smaller than mine, so it's a little big on her, but there are limits to what I'll put online ;)
Things I learnt from this project? I can unravel and dye cotton (this used to be a Land's End little girl's bright pink top), and it looks cool. I don't much like knitting with cotton to make lace, it splits all the time and is annoying. And I can delay finishing a project with the best of them - knitting was basically finished in October last year!
So now I have 7 things on the go - the Peppercorn Shawl has to be done soon though, as it's for an early May birthday. In terms of ancient projects that need a hit on the head, I'll try to finish off the Short Circuit Scarf next.
And thanks everyone for your encouraging comments on my last post - I'm glad it struck a chord for so many of you!
