Springtime knits

So I tried the crochet edging on the Sweet Mary Jane again, with no luck...it still came out looking different from the first slipper. What the heck is wrong the me? How can I figure it out once, but not the second go-around? Argh!! The new plan: Seek help from local yarn shop this weekend.

In the meantime, the world's slowest knitter has been contemplating lovely springy knits she could knit, if she knit faster. For example:

The Green Gable sweater...isn't it cute? Knit in the round, the only seaming at the sleeves. Perhaps it can be my first sweater. Of course, it probably would take me a year to knit...or more...maybe I can wear it next summer.



Or how about the Cool Hemp Ponchette? Normally I do not care for ponchos, unless they're for young children, but I rather like this one.



Well, a girl can dream...I'm actually working on the One Skein Wonder right now...how many more months will that take? Sometimes it is frustrating, when things others can knit in a day or two takes me months, but then I remind myself to be grateful that I can knit, even a little bit. Happy Friday!

I joined the sweet mary jane kal too (in November or December 2005). It was my first attempt at knitting something other than a scarf! It took me so-o-o-o long to figure it out but I finally did. I gave them to a friend for part of her Christmas present. It was a fun experience. Good luck with the edging!
