OK so there's a long way to go with Lizard Ridge yet, but really, isn't it great? I tell everyone that this is clever knitting, and it so is. How on earth could anyone come up with the idea of so many short rows and produce something that looks like an egg box before blocking? Ah these designers are so very clever. Would that I had half their talent.
Have cast on for the second glove. Another example of very clever knitting. I don't mean that I'm clever to knit these you understand, Lizard Ridge is simplicity itself and the glove pattern is so perfectly explained, I feel a near beginner could manage it. Just how do these designers do it? I'm trying to come up with a design myself at the moment. Have hit my head so hard on the brick wall, there's now a big dent. Don't even have a clue what to do. Inspiration, come to me please!
Totally away from this subject, do any of you know how long peas take to germinate? We planted some in the school garden a couple of weeks ago, and nothing is showing yet. The cornflowers, lettuces, carrots, onions and beetroot are all poking their tiny green heads out, but no peas. Were they duff seeds? Shall I just give it up as a bad deal and go to Sainsburys instead and get Mr Bird's Eye to help us out? Or should I just cheat a little bit and buy some pea plants from the garden centre?
