View Full Version : New cardy for John

03-17-2009, 06:28 PM

John is one of my sons, gente, a lovely person- and that is not only his mother talking :)
And for him I am knitting this 3 colours (navy, magnolia, maize) lovely pattern cardigan.
This is only the begining, and perhaps worries me a bit...
but thinking of quiting? NEVER! (here talks a Taurus female haha)
The truth is I didn' t think was going to be this hard.


But to make things easier, in the evenings I knit easier pieces- to recover myself of those few hours a day of pain.:woot:
Well is the fun of knitting....or am I a masoquist?

Kisses to everyone:muah:

Looks like you've got a great start at it. You sound just like me. I am always thinking "what the heck did I get myself into?" and then I go and do it again on the next project. LOL Maybe it's a Taurus thing ;) My husband doesn't get it and is always trying to keep me from the way I torment myself "can't you just buy a cake this time" or whatever but the truth is I must enjoy the torture whether it's knitting, baking, I just want to do more than I know how to do.

I agree, it's the projects that are the hardest that I enjoy the most in the end. It's going to be beautiful, and I'm sure he'll treasure it.

Wow! Quite an undertaking there ... It will look amazing though!!

Perhaps it is not so much the pain or frustration of the struggle, but more the exhilaration from successfully completing such beautiful and challenging work.

If you hike a flat, easy trail you miss the beautiful vistas of the summits that are a challenge to reach.

:eyebrow2: Did I just type that?

Yes, keeps rolling up and up, a few rows at the time, just what you all said.
Thanks for your encouragement, I need it.
Kisses to all,

I think it looks gorgeous!!! Are you knitting FI back and forth? Or steeking?

Back and forth, KnittingNat. Is a cardigan, opens in the front ( zip is in my mind)
The fairisle is more like a border, not and overall design.
Wish me luck
A kiss,
