Okay, so I said that I wouldn't be blogging again until I have pictures to share but last night I tried out Fair-Isle and I knit up Norwegian Star Hat in one evening. The color work was surprisingly easy and I really like it and the results! I'm only worried about the hat fitting my friend's head because the Fair-Isle isn't super stretchy (But it's not all bunched up or anything, it has some stretch just very much)
I really want to do some more color work. I liked doing this hat and the results are really nice. =)
I'm no longer afraid of Little Birds! I so want to knit it now. I just need to be able to afford the yarn...
Also, I've always been one of those people who think "I'll buy myself nice clothes once I actually lose some weight." The only problem is that I've been thinking like this for 4 years. This year I've shed about 15 pounds, but lately I've been so sedintary and with (not horrible) but poor eating habits.
I know that this sweater will take a while to complete and I will love it when it's done. I've been seriously trying to lose weight again.
So here's the question? Do I wait to knit it? Or do I knit it up risking it not fitting in a year or so? I feel like I would be a little sad about all that work going into the color work and shaping and such for it not to fit too soon.
Then again I may never get around to losing that extra 35 pounds.
