There I was zooming along nicely with my Rusted Root. It was knitting up so quickly that I thought I might get it completed by the weekend and get some instant gratification. But that was not to be. I knew all along that I didn't have enough yarn. When I bought the yarn I had the short sleeve version in mind. It was only once I started knitting that I realised I would get a lot more wear out of it if I made a long sleeve version. But I did think that I would get the body done and only have to buy extra yarn for the sleeves. Not so!
And, of course, because I live in the bush, far from shops, I will just have to wait a while before I get the opportunity to purchase more yarn.
So, now I have cast on this:
I love working with this yarn, Bendigo Woollen Mills Miami (unfortunately only available at the mill shop). I love the short colour changes and spend most of my time wondering whether the colour on my finger will match the colour of the stitch about to be knitted. (I'm easily amused).
Oh, you want to know what I'm knitting? Well someone out there probably has a fair idea. It will all be revealed in the fullness of time.
We are off on a short holiday this weekend. We've decided to drive to South Australia. I should be back by the end of the next weekend.
