No matter how often I clean out my knitting drawer, there's a few projects in there that I just can't seem to do something with. I was working on Vienne but there were things I didn't like about the pattern. I've taken it out of the drawer, and down to the basement, but haven't yet unravelled it. Soon. Baby steps. I've got three felted purses (Sophie Bags) that need handles sewn/created. One of them, I was knitting while I was in labour with Meg...who was born Nov. 2005. Yeah. The other biggie in the drawer was "Enchanting" by Fiddle Sticks Knitting.
Oh, I was SO excited to buy this kit. A designer pattern AND the recommended expensive yarn. I was worried about having enough yarn, and I managed to find another ball at the Kitchener Waterloo Knitter's Fair, uh.....I just spent 30 minutes scanning through my blog and I can't figure out when I bought it! I was sure I was working on it while on a trip to Niagara Falls, summer 2008, but my report for KW Fair 2007 doesn't mention it at all. I don't have the project listed in Ravelry, and it appears I've never even mentioned it on the blog (I was just scanning though, so I suppose I could have missed it). I know I emailed Fiddle Sticks a couple times about the sizing since I just could decide what size to make since I couldn't seem to match gauge.
Anyway. I knit it up, and blocked it. I wasn't happy with the fit, which was probably partially due to the gauge issues and also the sudden weight gain I had in 2009. I went ahead and did the neckband and sleeve caps. I wasn't sure at all about the sleeve caps though. They just looked weird.
I decided, now that I've lost weight, to try it on again, and make a decision. I am NOT ripping this out, and I don't know who else I could give it to, but I was hopeful for myself.
