Day 1: Batwing sweater for Edinburgh Yarn Festival

 Hello, my obsession with knitting has reached a new level of madness in that I really felt the need to write a blog about a project.

As some of you may have noticed I lurk around on ravelry, instagram, Twitter and facebook (ettedram, ettedram,@Mardette, Mardette Liddle).

I like knitting. Doing it, reading about it, listening to talks about it, researching patterns, having dilemmas about ‘what yarn’, ‘who for’, ‘what colour’ etc, etc, etc.

I spend an awful lot of money on my obsession (and don’t care)… which brings me to this… I am going to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival (both days) and noted some of you knitteratti chatting about crafting something specific to wear to the event.

Count me in, I thought.

Something for me!

Hours of perusing followed … you can guess how long if you look at my library on ravelry!

Pattern picked… yarn researched and chosen (colour – black)… New hiya hiya circulars purchased…

Just had to finish my Kaffe Afghan (and recover).

Tension square (s) done… WordPress joined… Bluetooth switched on phone and kindle… test pics posted… here we go
