The Heat Is Getting To Me...

I heard on the news the other day, that the weather here in Toronto this past week has been the same as Cancun, Mexico. I think the heat and humidity has impaired my judgement, because this is what I started:



Bayerische by Eunny Jang. (That woman is brilliant!)

I wanted to give up on the first row of the leg because it was so difficult. I usually have no problems with level of difficulty. Knitting is like cooking with a recipe: you just follow the instructions and everything will turn out the way it's supposed to. But this pattern...the stitches were so tiny and tight, with a gazillion twists...Anyways, as you can see, I hung in there and it did get easier. Not easy, just easier.

I have one of those! Started ages ago and that's about as far as I've got! Not that it's difficult it just takes so much concentration to knit that small so I can only do a few rows at a time then have to do something less taxing. The finished article on Eunny's site look so lovely though that I'm determined to finish

That is one pattern I haven't made yet. It looks hard. Your's is looking great, and I do love all the twists and turns...gives it a lot of character.
