I started St Brigids on the 15th March, using a New Zealand yarn,
Merino et Soie ( gave me near perfect tension swatch).A soft yarn
composed of merino and silk,lovely to work with on bamboo needles.
With fear and trepidation I commenced it. Using stitch markers, and
graphs on my lap,determination and a smile plus strict instructions to
my husband not to speak!!! (you know how it is.)
The first pattern repeat was an interesting saga .. Never having
worked from a graph before..!!!!
ON i went to the first pattern repeat... only to notice that my first
pattern had a few errors.. ( hey BUT i decided to leave them there to
keep me humble ....grin)
From then on things went beautifully. I just love it. .I did a half a
pattern repeat a day.. and on the 29th March i had finished the back
and started the front.
Knitting into the back of the single knit stitch beside cables gives a
neat tight finish.( a hint i gleaned from Knitorious i think)
The A.S. increases( making 3 out of 1 stitch) are fun.(savannahchik
knits shows it in detail)
Thanks for a great site. I am thoroughly enjoying this project.
I was just imagining a coffee morning with all the members in their
completed St BRigids.. A sisterhood of sorts.. Cheers from Australia
