It is called Floral Dance.
I have never knitted with such fine yarn before but I couldn't resist the beautiful floral colours of this. I searched long and hard for a suitable pattern to try and decided on...
The pattern is rated as 'easy' and the reviews I have read said, it was a pleasure to knit and very quick. They also state the pattern is 'Spot on'. So far I have frogged it seven times and this afternoon I gave it to my Mom to see if she could work out what on earth I am doing wrong. My Mom struggled a bit but my sons were being boys and the dog was being playful so it was hard to concentrate. Well, my Mom now thinks I should be on track with it, I am worried to try again as I have given it only one more chance! I have work to do before I can get back to knitting today. I seem to be a little jinxed lately. Does anyone have any advice for when one feels they are about to throw a knitting tantrum or get aggressive with knitting needles? It would make me feel better if you could share your disasters and frogging records!
