I must confess, I am giving up on two of the challenges. Sorry. I haven't done any knitting this Winter (due to struggling with a touch of depression and also focusing on finishing the quilt of doom..) and I just don't feel like my skill level is high enough to complete a jumper for Aesop, or a cardi for myself. I can't justify splashing out on decent wool or putting in the hours to complete them. As a compromise I'll be sure to sew each of us a top before the year is out.
The completed are in light grey, the give-ups are in dark grey and the to-dos are in bold black.
1. Fit into my favourite summer top. - Can do it up, but still not 'decent' enough to wear out.
3. Knit myself a cardigan I love. -Am canning this goal. My knitting isn't improving fast enough to spend the dosh, and the time, on a cardi. Stink.
