Is there a pattern or skill that you don’t yet feel ready to tackle but which you hope to (or think you can only dream of) tackling in the future, near or distant? Is there a skill or project that makes your mind boggle at the sheer time, dedication and mastery of the craft?
There are two patterns I aspire to doing, both require a lot of work and skill but they use different skills. Both are a wee bit down my queue as well cos they're a little scary.
The second I'm working my way up to, I'll post photo's of what I'm going to knit first to get my tension correct and the last photo will be the ultimate colourwork jersey that I'm aiming for.
This is what I'm aiming at. This is Henry VIII by Alice Starmore. I've bought the kit for this as the book is out of print. So I've got a box with the pattern and the full compliment of yarn in the above colours in her Hebridean yarn. It wasn't cheap so I have to make sure I know what I'm doing before I tackle this one.
In the meantime I'm still working on my Bug-Out mittens which are giving me a little more experience in stranded colourwork and also designing. Designing is probably my final goal. I've done the wee socks and working on the gloves but would love to design something in the way of a cardigan or jersey.
