I came to desicion on Friday that I would have to change my pattern slightly for my Tour de France project. I am terrible for keeping to patterns as you may or may not know, I get bored easily. In keeping with “Diamants” I decided on a Diamond Lace border.
Which could have gone either way, as Phil or Paul said during stage four, as some cyclists went left around the roundabout (most went right) “You shouldn’t have gone that way my dear boy, you’ve slipped back 30 places”, but I found it spurred me on a bit, as I wanted to finish the border by the end of the weekend, and I did! Instead of going back to the original pattern, I shall be knitting a bit of Fern Lace so I am in keeping with “Fougère” too. Oh how I love my Harmony Guide to Knitting Stitches!
What I am desperately worried about now, is not having enough yarn! I have ordered more Lambswool/Silk from Shunklies, it’s not the same colour as she didn’t have any, but at least it’s the same yarn, it’s a bit pinkier…so we’ll just have to see what it looks like.
Only two days to go until I finish work for the summer!
