Happy Blakeslee

I was tired of the Blakeslee test knit. Unraveling more than half of my work is pretty discouraging, usually projects go in the “shame on you!” pile when that happens.

But, as this is a test knit, I have a deadline. Deadlines usually don’t give place for hybernation of any kind. So I have just knitted along, slower this time, hoping that I would get my mojo back regarding this particular project..

It didn’t take more than a fitting to get back the spirit! I decided I had to try it on again, just to make sure to avoid more unraveling. And, it fits, it’s actually marvellous! So, off we go again, only some 10cm or so to go before the ribbing. Hurray!
