I did it! I cast on for Crumpets as scheduled. Twice, actually. Firstly, plain cast on. Then I thought, well, it's supposed to be challenging so do the picot cast on. Took a little longer but I am pleased with the results. I am using Endless Summer Sonata fromhttp://elann.com One of my favourite haunts! Most of my stash comes from there. Also, the pattern uses two different (easy) cable stitches, so a further challenge for me is to do them without a cable needle. A very slow process for me on the first try as the kittys were close, making me very nervous. They were ready to pounce on my yarn! Luckily, the chicken flavoured treats thrown about the kitchen kept them at bay!
So here she is:
I Will Not Procrastinate. I will Perservere. I will finish this project in the alloted 16 days. (one down, 15 to go)
(Quality of the photo has no is not representative of the quality of the knitting) I hope!
