And I officially finished the Tudor Rose KAL but I will definitely do one more of Tudor Rose from Alice Starmore, the true master of knitting. Im in awe of this pattern. As you notice, I made it long and big. It will stand a bit shrinking ;-) And, as I horrified noticed, the apple round belly is still sticking out - so it is not too big. Phew! No wonder it is, I have been sitting on my butt knitting for all my spare time! Anyhow, I recommendthe TUdor Rose knitting book, fantastic. So rewarding. Also, notice that the neck is a bit hard to see on (same as in the book). But I have a close up if you scroll down a bit..The body is very straight and makes the sleeve hang down. I do not mind, but pressing it, it became a bit sticking out. It hides my butt, but that is nice in the cold weather. So, for 1 and half week of great spring weather, I have been knitting. And now - it is raining. My luck! Anyhow, it was not so time consuming (but you faithful readers know Im a workaholic, so time to knit is not much..and I have not been travelling so much).
Even from behind.... Yes it is (Im) big. Ultra big. Made on 3.5 mm needles. And I think I recommend to all normal size people to knit it in small. This is large (and some extra - to make the patter fit in the round). Yep, I did remake the pattern to knit on circular, and it is as easy either way, meaning, that when coming to the sleeve division (when you have to guess!) it is no problem going back and forth. Anyhow. Proud as a any knitter! I did it. Oh... And I can finally go on for new knitting adventures. And PS: I promise I should not complain. I'm the typical "projection"! someone gives me advice and I get upset... and hey, a few days later I give someone else advice on the web. PLEASE forgive me - as I will forgive all of you. Now It is time to clean the house (hmm, I have been knitting - not cleaning! - except for those Mother-in-law/F-I-L visit!) Hurray! More knitting to the people. Is it true Alchemy yarn is coming to Stockholm? Is it true they are opening just now? How interesting. And I heard from BBC the sheep gets smaller as a result of the climate-change? Less wool! Ahh! (Good to have a yarn collection!)
