What’s on my knitting needles?

Running a business takes a lot of time and my knitting time has been severely reduced recently. By the time I’m sat down of an evening, I don’t feel like picking up my knitting needles. However I’m making an effort at the moment to regain my knitting mojo.

I’m currently using the Rowan Summerlite 4 Ply yarn to knit this crossover top, called Hellebore, from the accompanying knitting pattern book and am really enjoying using it.

The pattern uses a chart and it took me a while to get into it. I had to redo one row 3 times and still couldn’t get it right, so fudged it and continued. I’m now on the third pattern repeat and it’s fine. I don’t know what I did wrong in the first pass, but never mind. The pattern itself has clicked now too, so I’m not having to read off the chart too much.

Incidentally, in my last post, I talked about using a day to a page diary that I was given at Christmas, to help me with my life planning and I’m finding it really quite helpful. I divide the page up so that I have any appointments or events on the left hand side and a to do list on the right hand side. I also add odd items that I need to pop to the shops to buy on the right hand side. I make notes at the bottom regarding what I might be cooking for dinner and things I need to remember to pray for. It’s keeping my brain clear now!
