my creative space

It's growing! Surprisingly quickly, really.
I've used my fandangled new stitch holders, and I'm about to embark on some 'short rows'. Just slightly scary as I've never done them before. But if I can do them here, that's another reason to start knitting socks, as short rows seem to play a big part in heel flaps. Can't start socks until I've finished the jacket though!

I'm quite enjoying this project! And because I'm the beginner knitter, the pattern corrections are coming through from other, more competent knitters before I get to those bits! I figure I'm testing the pattern to see if it really is possible for an 'advanced beginner' :-)

To see more creative spaces, visit the queen of the quilt project (which was amazing by the way, I'm so glad I got to see it in person!).

Ummmm hop on over to my site NEXT week to see a real beginner knitter. i am learning from youtube tutorials- so sad I know- and I am easily distracted... the 5 rows I've got going right now are a bit of a fright. But I am having fun and hope it'll come with time. Your knits looks gorgeous. xo m.

It's looking great Anna. I'm wondering if your knitting "L" plates need to be changed to "P" plates!
