In March I challenged myself by knitting Annis. It's a pretty narrow shawl in laceweight yearn, and a free pattern on Knitty. What was challenging about it was that for the first time in my life, I had to tackle nupps.
I found a gorgeous yarn (silk/cashmere mix 2ply) in a fabulous jade colour, which would go well with some fabric I've bought to make some summer clothes when my sewing mojo returns.
I found knitting nupps made me feel tense cross, so I was relieved when that bit was over - dealing with keeping 7 loops being knit into one stitch tidy and together was not easy for me. There is another way (at least one) of working them which involves the use of a crochet hook, and when/if I return to the nupp, I will try out that method instead.
Annis completed and blocked is, however, a pretty thing and the colour and feel are gorgeous. I'd better hurry up and get sewing so I've got the rest of the outfits to go with mine!
