Work in Progress

March 06, 2012 5 Comments

The teachers did a great job!  We had a hectic, but very fun 45 minutes with 17 well behaved, polite grade school ladies.  There was a lot of knitting progress made.  The best part is that we still have 3 more sessions to really get down to business! Now that Girasole  is completed I can really focus on Sebright.  I am working on the front pockets, which I have never done before.  It is so fun learning new techniques! I was able to take some finished photos of Girasole - sorry if you are sick of seeing it, but I have never been so excited about a project before :)

I was hoping you’d post some photos of Girasole after blocking— love it! Looks like the class was a success!

Your border blocked out beautifully! And that colour, it’s to die for. I knit a Girasole as a wedding gift for a friend a few years ago, it was such a rewarding project because it’s just so awesome! I think I need to knit another for myself… seeing your gorgeous version is really inspiring!

I asked because I wanted to know for sure and Kara told me that smiling picture was taken after the class, so it looks like it was a success!!

[…] I’ve been working on this pretty steadily since Thanksgiving and I’m currently on skein 4 out of 5 so it might be do-able, but with 640 stitches per row – this isn’t a super quick knit. It’s a very enjoyable knit though, you kind of feel as though you’re making a masterpiece. Remember Katie’s gorgeous version of Girasole here and here? […]

Aly and Cara,
Looks like the class was at Aly’s school. What a great idea!
