Okay, I finally cleared the slate a bit to work on finishing Baby Norgi for my friend’s little one. So here’s a progress shot:Trouble is, I started knitting this thing months ago, and I’m not sure it’ll still fit him anymore. And to be honest, I’m a bit…. bored with this. I don’t know, maybe it’s the reindeer, maybe it’s the boring colours I chose. But the Baby Norgi ennui is definitely there. I’m hoping that the excitment of steeking will perk things up.
I assume the steeking takes care of that jog in the round, because right now, that’s ugly:The major reason I chose to knit this (other than my bizarre compulsion to take on more WIPs than I can possibly handle) was to try steeking, since I haven’t done it before and I have a secret project that will need that technique.
I’m dying to talk about my secret project (of my own design, to boot), but it is a Christmas gift for my mother and she checks my blog. I’m suprised at how much this pains me, because I’m usually an expert secret keeper- I actually had a job that was titled ‘Confidential Secretary’ (a seriously weird title that made it sound like I had lunch with James Bond on a regular basis. Truth is, we only had lunch together once and all he did was moan about how Moneypenny won’t talk to him anymore), that’s how top notch I am in keeping secrets. But for some reason I am dying to blog about my secret knitting project. Just. Dying.
