WIP Wednesday

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I've been working on a new design these last few days, but my first version of a neck warmer isn't right.

Ces derniers jours j’ai travaillé sur un nouveau dessin, mais le premier modèle d’un cache-col n’est pas bon.

neck warmer, 1st draft

At first I wanted to knit it in the round and then cut it, then I realized it was big enough to go over my head. The problem is that it isn't strong enough to stand up on its own, so it really needs to be a lot shorter, and closed with buttons. I'm starting a new one today knit flat instead of in the round. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be able to show you version two!

Je voulais le tricoter dans le rond et puis le couper, mais en tricotant j’ai réalisé que ce serait assez grand pour passer ma tête. Le problème est qu’il n’est pas assez ferme pour rester debout tout seul, donc il faut vraiment qu’il soit plus court et fermé avec les boutons. Je recommence aujourd’hui et je tricote à plat plutôt que dans le rond. J’espère qu’en fin de semaine j’aurais la version deux à vous montrer !

i heart the colors. and i could so use one of these myself. can't wait to see the new version with the buttons. which is genius too, since pulling it over the head always messes up the locks.

and you KNOW what a fashion maven i am. :)

The design on your neck-warmer is lovely. As a knitter who is trying to re-acquire my HS French, I love that your blog is bi-lingual.
