Autumn is here! This is the season where knitters come in to their own, all the hats, scarfs, shawls, gloves and mittens get worn. AND THEN there's the actual garments.
Which I have failed to knit.
I've got several on the go, I just haven't finished any.
I really want to rectify this woeful situation so a couple of weeks ago, when it started to get a bit chilly, I cast on a Lanesplitter Skirt.
As it turned out, nature was going to have a little joke this year: 'Autumn you say?? Ok....... NOT REALLY! Have a week of hot weather, just to confuse you!'. So I put it down for a while - it was too hot to sit with what looks like a tiny wool blanket on my lap. Now it is really cold (we could have snow in two weeks) I love sitting with a mini blanket on my lap!
I'm knitting with Noro Kureyon, my Dad gave me 10 balls for Christmas last year (he presented himself in a yarn shop and asked for 'Enough wool for a jumper please.') and in the hope of getting more yarn this year I though I'd better use it. This is my first Noro experience and I love the rustic proper woolly wool feel of it.... the knots - not so much. They seem to come out of nowhere and have to be undone, I don't mind the colour sequence being disrupted because the stripes hide that but the volume of knots is irritating.
This is great pattern, easily adjusted to different lengths and it's going to keep me toasty warm!
