With my lace pattern giving me grief
- sure, I know it was me
that was the problem and not the pattern because I read, then promptly forgot the directions and merrily carried on knitting lace until I realized I had gone too far. Still, grief is what followed. Reading lace knitting has never been my knitting forte. While I can read, understand and even carry out the instructions, once ripped, I have difficulty 'reading' where in the lace pattern I am/was. That was the true cause of the grief.
The general population might seek comfort in a miriad of things and, at times, so do I. I am however, a Knitter. First and foremost then, I seek comfort in the needles.
This weekend, , I set aside Peasy, with it's grief-causing lace and instead knit one of these. A Comfort Doll.
The pattern is here
. My doll is seen here, first, lying flat, with both knitting and embroidery done.
And here, partially sewn, waiting for the stuffing.
A quick knit, a bit of embroidery, some stuffing and there's comfort for both the knitter and the eventual owner of the doll.
Cute! Do post more pictures when finished!
very cute - love the colours you've used.
And I totally agree with taking abreak from one type of knitting - there's always another type waiting for you.
What a cute, fun little knit! I love the colors you chose. It's always good to toss in an instant gratification project when you're working on something that frustrates you.
