I've been very busy for the last few weeks knitting and crocheting items from my stash of left over wool. I'll show you some of the items at another time but this afternoon I settled down to watch the semi finals of the snooker and start a new knitting project at the same time. 2 hours later it was 10 inches long but then I had to put down the knitting as the match became very intense and my fingers could knit any faster; the more excited I become the faster I knit.
I was in a quandary: I didn't want to pull the work down and do a different pattern and I couldn't afford to not use the wool. I studied the picture on the pattern carefully and eventually created what I now call a twisted chain stitch which ran vertically to the top of the jumper. I thought it looked great and wore my jumper proudly once it was finished. Lots of my friends admired it and I wore it regularly; it was my own design after all!
