The Solstice Painters first exhibition closed last Thursday, I’ve since been to my first day at The Lantern Advanced Textile Group, and I’m starting art classes next Wednesday in Montgomery with a lady by the name of Rosie Read. Next month, it’s back to June’s class,to study Still Life. Daisy’s had a hair cut, Izzy is in even more pieces on my kitchen work surface while I attempt to prise off dried on oil. Phew, what have I set myself up for I wonder?
On top of that I’m trying to knit Ringwood Gloves in the round and struggling with my first finger – well have you tried knitting 10 stitches in the round on 4 needles? Fiddly or what? I thought sock knitting was bad enough.
I was going to undo the first finger, as the Ringwood pattern has gone all to pot.
That was until I was taking photos and realised that the pattern in the base of the thumb has also gone to pot and I’ve made mistakes in the pattern of the main body of the glove, just to the left of the base of the thumb in the photo above. This means I’ve got to undo the whole thing to the cuff. Perhaps it would be better if I unravelled the whole thing and find an easier glove pattern to try, if there is such a thing as an easier pattern. My version certainly looks nothing like these here In fact after looking at these, I’m more determined to knit these gloves. I’m off to start unravelling. Wish me luck.
Jane & Daisy.
