I have been wanting to make this little knitted top for quite a while, but I promised myself that I wouldn't start on it until I had finished with my purple sweater. The yarn had to be ordered as I couldn't find it anywhere so I figured that would give me plenty of time to finish the previous one... wrong! The new yarn came in lightning speed time...... and I was dreadfully naughty and just couldn't resist to knit just a couple of rows with it, just to see how it feels. Well more than a couple of rows were knit and I am happy to report it is just yummy.
My mother had so much more willpower than I have. She would never start any new knitting until the previous work was all completed. Not even if there was a bag of the most wonderful new yarn sitting alongside her knitting basket, she would always complete the item she was working on. I can hear her voice now telling me to "finish what you have started." I guess no matter how old we get we still sometimes don't listen to our mothers!
Now I know that you all do it too. You do, right? You can tell me I promise I won't breathe a word to anyone... honestly!
