Working Progress Wednesday - Hichhiker


Hello Wednesday, and what a rainy miserable day it is!

Blog post is a little late today because I went shopping and brought a new outfit for a friend’s hen weekend in London this coming weekend.

I managed to find a pair of gorgeous mint stilettos {which I totally won’t be able to walk in!!} in my size!!! {Huge size 8} which is a rarity!!

 Any way back to todays topic…{lol} In Mondays post, i mentioned i was going to post a tutorial, unfortunately Monday afternoon; I had to take my youngest to A&E for his asthma, which resulted in an overnight stay, so will try and get that post up tomorrow.

 So today i want to show you my new project, the Hichhiker, which I have had to start again because my first attempt was soooo Naff!! And you guys know how relaxed I am about my knitting lol, but this was too much!! I even had to save it so I could show you!
LOL that is what happens, when i don't count rows!
Now I have started it again, I am so pleased with the results, and I love the way the pattern really shows off my Skein of Fantasy.

Last week, I started reading A women before me I am now 90% of the way through and really enjoying it, I have to say, some parts are quite sad, and I have shed a little tear or two!
The Woman Before Me

I am sooo glad I downloaded the kindle app for my phone!, because on Monday when I dashed to the hospital I had no knitting or my actual Kindle with me, Hubby stayed at home with our other two children and  as the nearest A&E  is a good 45min away I had no way of getting them to me!!
Really was a life saver! So if you have an IPhone, I recommend you download it, as you never know when your get stuck! :D

  2. My Hitchiker was a miscounted disaster, I don't think I got a single spike right. I frogged it in the end so well done to you for sticking at it. I feel I ought to give it another go really, maybe I'll join you!

  9. AH! I had a rough patch at the beginning of my Hitchiker also! But it's pretty fabulous when you get onto it. I'm about a third of the way through mine and I love it.

    And all that mint?!?!?!

    LOVE.
