This will probably be the most boring project that you ever see me working on...
Mostly because of the colour.
(not that there's anything wrong with that)
But it's JUST navy. Not navy and this, or navy and that. No colourful trims or embellishments. Just a plain navy cardigan.
To be honest, I don't know if I will have the stamina to see this one through - I get bored REALLY easily!
Why am I making it then?
Well... today was a big day in the Goldfish Household.
I went back to work. Actual permanent work.
Let's just say it's been a while! I've done casual bits and pieces here and there, but it's ELEVEN YEARS since I left my last permanent position. That was before kids!!!
Anyhow, I need a navy cardigan for work. Just plain navy. I've started a few already, and then changed my mind and frogged (unravelled) them.
This one is called Hermia. It's a free online pattern, available here. A while back, I made my daughter this jacket here called Helena... well Hermia is an adult version of the jacket, written by the same designer.
I'm still kind of undecided about it though.
It is worked top down. My plan it to knit it as written until just below the arms... and then maybe modify a bit. Basically, I'll just play it by ear, and if I don't like how it is shaping up - 'rip-it'
Wish me luck... with the job AND the jacket!
