I am notoriously bad at finishing things at the moment, so I knuckled down over the last few weeks of my school holidays and focused on getting two of my projects finished.
My monkey socks, only took me about 5 months and they should of taken a couple of weeks at most!!! I love the way the yarn changes from deep blue at the top to more aqua blue at the toes, cool effect which I wasn't expecting when I bought the yarn from Helen at Waratah fibres
I also finished my Hey Teach! Cardigan from knitty
I made a few changes to the cardi. I made it a few inches longer, I picked up more stitches around the neck and fronts of the cardi (changed from 24 stitches picked up to nearly 50 on each neck edge), and I left out the waist ribbing. I also knitted this in the round, dividing at the sleeves and knitting the rest flat, which meant the only seaming I had to do was on the sleeves. I am fairly happy with the look of it, but am yet to try it on and get the real picture!
Finishing things feels awesome!
Now I had better do some much needed house work :)
