What I did so far this week

I started knitting St. Brigid on Monday, I started it 3 times! I did a swatch and thought I had it right, but it was way too wide (after doing 11 rows) so I tried another size needles, it was still too wide (after another 11 rows!)

I finally did it on size 4mm needles and it looks good so far, I'm up to row 19, here's a picture:




I've also did some knitting on my green cardigan, it's so easy! It's a 10 stitches repeat on the right side so it's not a problem to remember, so I can knit and watch t.v. at the same time.



I'm also working on "Secret of Bad Nauheim" when I have some free time :)

i just popped in to see whats new, you have soo much on your needles at once- i can barely find the motivation to finish the 2 pairs of socks i'm working on. And i tried to force myself to finish them before starting something new. i have 4 new yarns at home, and 12 more coming.
its very eerie, i just started a baby blanket in a stitch thats very similar to the stitch you are using. i found it in a book of knitting stitches, and they are calling it "snowflakes"

St. Brigid is looking great (looks like fun!), and so does the green sweater. Such beautiful work!
