Extremes of knitting.

When I started knitting last year,
most of my projects were small and on circulars.
Gratifying and satisfying.

Then you have the flat knitting.
Necessitating seemingly endless amounts of time to sew up seams.
Especially on bigger projects.

Yarn: Cleckheaton Country Paintbox 8 ply (green)

A 7 and 1/2 year old skinny minny
modelling a size 10 jumper
(so a teensy bit oversized but best I could do at short notice)

It hasn't been blocked yet
and I am hoping that the collar will roll more
(and more evenly) once it has been.

Meanwhile, I guess these occsasional larger, seamed projects
were invented to remind me
to appreciate the smaller, seamless projects.

Wow look at you go girl, you've lapped me a few times on that knit-o-geek-o-meter. LOVE the pickles one. Its waiting patiently in my queue. Not sure I could be bothered again with the seamed ones though.

You're a knitting machine! :)
Almost makes me want to pick up the needles.
