So I decided to play with it a bit. Here's where I got to so far. I'm not there yet. It doesn't lie completely flat naturally and there's just a bit too much tension on those rings I've added. I will be working another version of it. It think Minuet deserves a re-design so that, hopefully, it can be better appreciated!
This is tatted in the new Lizbeth Harvest Gold colour way.
Quite an unusual colour, a bit "mustardy" I would say.
Perhaps it's a little too full and busy like that. I can't make up my mind yet. But I will be working up other variations. I like the three bead points very much and will be keeping that.
The knitting is coming along very well - faster than expected in fact. I have too fronts done and am nearly finished one sleeve. I explored new knitting techniques in a bid to speed up the K1P1 stitch of my cardigan. I modified my English way of knitting to stop dropping the needle so that moving the wool back and forth for the purl and knit stitches can be done in one movement and save some time. I tried lever knitting with a long knitting needle under the arm. I also tried Portuguese knitting with a pin which I am enjoying. So at the moment I use both my new English way of knitting and the Portuguese way trying to improve on speed. It's a work in progress but even after a week, I'm much quicker at both.
How about you? What's your favourite way to knit?
