One thing at a time …

… is something I’ve never been particularly good at. But, I’ve finished one thing so that means I’m allowed to start another, right?

The finished thing is Gran’s Lace Ribbon Scarf, which is drying on the floor behind me as I type. I’m not sure it’s going to be dry enough to package up to be posted tomorrow but at least it’s knitted on time! I’ll take a better picture once it’s dry.

The new thing is the Shetland Shorty from the latest issue of Knitty. I bought some Sirdar Just Bamboo yarn on clearance at Hobbycraft last week and have been hunting around for something to make with it.

Although there are only 9 balls in the picture, I’ve actually got 12, four of each colour. The others were off being swatched when the photo was taken.

It’s far heavier than yarn suggested for the pattern so there’s going to be quite a lot of tweaking involved and I’m already thinking that I might lengthen the cardigan to suit me better but that’s all part of the fun!
