I am an incredibly slow knitter - and as my children grow bigger, my knitting just seems to feel even slower, so I am very happy that I have finished one of my knitting works in progress. I fell in love with the Spring Garden Tee pattern when I first saw it. I hunted around for the same yarn (as whenever I try to substitute yarns it never works out!) and finally found some from an international ebay seller and off I started.... until I got to a tricky part, then I put it away for a little while until I could work it out.... then I'd pick it back up again.... then put it away.... had to re-do the neckline twice as this was the first time I'd had to 'pick up' stitches and my first attempt ended up in a baggy neck that had way too many stitches in it! Finally got the time and courage to do it again and finally I had a top! Granted there are a few mistakes, but most of them aren't seen when it's on. Next time I really need to start at a size or two bigger as by the time I finished this one it only just fits her.
