carrot

The thing I hate most about studying is essay writing, I can’t motivate myself, I panic and freeze. I suddenly stop being able to think when deadlines loom. And at the moment I have 2 2005 word essays due in on Monday. I’ve written 1300 words. They probably don’t make any sense at all. But I still have hope that they’ll get done. I’ve never had any work done by this stage. I also rarely achieve ‘my potential’ in essays – apparently I’m not dilligent enough. Or I’m too dis-organised.
But here is my carrot – http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/simplegloves/herringbone.html the pattern is in Japanese but I ran it through babelfish and the result was relatively intelligable. I love how Japanese patterns are so clearly written visually. Ooh and I even have the same yarn they used – except in pale pink and red. Hopefully this will motivate me somewhat.

A long line cardigan with pockets is a wardrobe staple and I designed Granton, and its lighter weight sibling Wardie, to take that place in your wardrobe. Designing a basic garment is all about the small details, for Granton and Wardie my driving goal when choosing those details was creating a garment that you’d reach for again and again. Some of the techniques used might seem a bit intimidating when you first read the description, but they’re all used for a good reason, and adding them to your repertoire will level up your handmade sweater skills.
