Wednesday WIP - Speed Knitting

The last week has been dominated by speed knitting. Last week I discovered I had a deadline which I'd got mixed up about. That left me 7 days to knit one sweater. It was an easy sweater which was worked in the round to the underarm in an oversized size 10 without proper sleeves. Mainly stocking stitch with some easy lace in DK yarn.  I managed to finish the sweater in 5 days! I think that's a record. 

Over the weekend, Simon was busy decorating our shower room so I spent most of the time in the garden knitting. I cut it really fine with regards to yarn amount. That little ball of blue yarn is what I had left:

I've also knitted a Starlight fingerless mitten. I'm teaching Starlight as a workshop at Spin A Yarn on Friday and I gave the small size original sample to a friend and the large size I've lost so I had to knit up a new sample. Here are details of the workshop.

If you're interested in joining me on Friday, there may still be spaces. Contact Spin A Yarn for details.

I'm back to working on another deadline cardigan which I need to finish by the end of the weekend. So that'll be my focus for the next few days. I'm hoping there will be lots more chances to knit in the sunshine. We've had about two weeks of sunshine now and I love it.

My patterns are 3 for 2 until 22 June in my Ravelry Pattern Shop so if you can't make it to the Starlight workshop but fancy knitting yourself a pair or treating yourself to a selection of other patterns, now's a good time. Just choose three patterns and the cheapest will be free. No coupon code needed. Valid until 22 June.
