After a marathon session of speed knitting, I knit 6 samples in 10 days. Phew! It was tough on my hands and arms. Knitting quickly for that many days in a row makes me feel muscles that I didn’t know were used for knitting. I think the most sore part was my left shoulder.
Now, I’m relaxing my knitting muscles by cross stitching. I learned about biscornus last year and found these two french books that have so many beautiful patterns. I started the girls a while ago, but got slowed down by all of the little half stitches. I’ve found that I’m not fond of color changes for one tiny stitch. I just started the blue and white last night. I plan on filling these with lavendar.
