WIP wednesday :: Dahlia Cardi ::

Oh my I love this pattern, I came across it after I purchased the online edition of Interweave Knits Fall 2011, for the Pembroke Wrap pattern, as soon as I saw it I wanted to make it, but wasn't really sure my knitting skills were up to the challenge.  But I needn't have worried as it turns out they were (well so far anyway).

Rainy weekends make a perfect excuse to master new knitting skills.


 With all the miserable rain we've had the last....hmmm....well it feels like forever, but lets say, week, I've had plenty of oportunity to stay indoors and knit.  I literally spent the whole weekend on the sofa doing just that and as a result finished the lace panel on the back in super speedy time (especially for someone so new to lace knitting) and as far as I can see without any mistakes!


I'm now on to the mass of stocking stitch which makes up the rest of the piece, I have a feeling this bit is going to take a long time, but I'm so eager to wear the finished piece I'm hoping this project won't get abandoned.
