WIP Week - Day 4

Aleita shell from Interweave Knits. What can I say? If it wasn't for the facts that
1. I don't frog and
2. I don't think this yarn would be happy at being frogged
I would frog this right here and now.

I don't like the pattern, the complicated decreases are doing my head in and I've ignored this for so long I have no idea where I am with it. I also have a sneaking suspicion that I will look enormous wearing it. (Horizontal stripes are never such a good idea are they?)

The only good thing about this is the yarn - Posh Yarn's Camel. I can see it being very useful in the winter at football matches when I have stand for 2 hours freezing at the side of a wet and windy football pitch.

Must force myself to finish this. In fact I may very well not let myself knit anything else all weekend just to see if I can get it done. OK then, there's my goal. Come back on Monday to see if I've been strong in my resolve!

You can do it! It looks really lovely actually and I'm sure it will be very snuggly! Just keep knitting and think how pleased you will be when it is finally finished!
