Hell, sorry I have been away so long I got a little carried away with my latest pattern, the Helena sweater, I love the pattern, I love how it looks on both it’s name sake Helena “the tall” and my dumpy self (OK I’m not THAT dumpy)
writing the pattern was a labour of love, for two reasons.
1) I initially submitted the design to a crochet magazine so had to write seven sizes XS – 3XL, this involved a lot of hair grabbing and muttering at the computer.
Really I look and sound crazy/ like a wizard when doing the computer side of writing.
2) the cowl, I LOVE , LOVE, LOVE the cowl it is snuggely, warm, and doubles as a hood but it is fifty rows wide and I had to make two to check the sizes.
Honestly, why do I make things with one huge boring section? you would have thought I’d have learnt from the skater dress
, but NOOOOOOO. The body of the sweater is only sixty six rows long for the longest size.
SO that’s where I have been for the last month. I am planning on spending more time blogging, possibly with a stitch directory and I have some yarn related experiments in my mind.
