A quick Leftie

Posted by KnittingDane on Tue, 2013-12-03 14:23

Last thursday my sister called.

After some small talk, she asked me if I was ready for sunday?! Ehhh Sunday? Yeah, she said. Mum and me are finished. Ehhh?!

Then it hit me. Ultimo august we had been on a girls trip to Flensburg. Here we bought 3 matching skeins of yarn. The idea was to knit a project each before we met again in the christmas time. In the meantime I had rescheduled our yearly christmas come-together to 3 weeks earlier than planned. And forgotten the skein in the corner of my living room.

Oh well - I picked it up and cast on stitches. I didn't finish it, but I got far. At least I had something to show Sunday.

It was a Leftie. The pattern is easy. The only technique used other than plane knitting is short rows. And they are not that difficult to learn Smile (Here's a Danish article + video.)
