... or alternatively, why on earth did I think it would be a good idea to spend £23 on two skeins of laceweight yarn to make Regatta?
I finished the main panel in about a month (yes, yes, I know, but I am not a fast knitter by any means...) After that, I went off knitting a bit and did no work on it for another six weeks. Started again a couple of weeks ago, but I'm struggling with the border. There are four sides of border to knit - two long and two short - and I haven't even finished the first long side yet!
I've been knitting for a long time, and have successfully worked cables, intarsia, in the round, on dpns, sweaters, cardigans, mittens, scarves and hats. But I never tried a laceweight yarn project before and I'm also not entirely confident I will be able to manage the double joins, triple joins, etc, as specified in the instructions.
However, I think the main problem is really the school holidays. Call me a killjoy, but after nearly seven weeks of having kids at home, I'm longing for the start of term, and a return to the regular routines of the school year. Roll on Thursday!
