{ SIZZLE TO SPRING }

Hey lovelies –

No sooner had I completed Smoulder, I decided to start on Sizzle 🙂 As you know, I was very tempted to purchase the Enchanted book however I decided to wait on this because its quite pricey for only a handful of patterns that I really like or could actually attempt due to my skill level.

Sizzle_KimHargreavesAnyway, Ive gone with the classic white as shown in the Whisper book. I was { VERY } tempted to go red, I just couldnt find the perfect red yarn so I resorted to the very close second. White looks so pure & clean – perfect for spring teamed with some pastels or brights.

Cast on last week & completed the ribbed band but was a tad confused as to how the pattern was meant to start as the pattern was mentioning WS, RS but WS is RS – oh boy, I just started & then after 20 or so rows, realised something was wrong so had to frog back down to the ribbed band & start again only to have more problems & had to frog back twice more. I still dont think Im knitting it the correct way, especially when I compare mine to the other Ravelry members but I actually prefer the RS to show the KNIT instead of the PURL so Im just going to continue this way, complete the front & then decide on whether I scrap it or resume.

Now that Im settled on the knit vs purl RS facing, I am enjoying the stitch especially the {YRN2} and {YRN3} producing the lovely ladder effect. Clever!

So, thats where I am at the moment on this…

Thanks for stopping by x
