The Knitting Naughty Corner

Do you have a knitting naughty corner? You the place projects go when they have committed the mortal fibre sins of not working, being boring or just losing your eternal love? I certainly have the KNC. Projects might languish there for days, months or even years. They go there for so many different reasons. Mainly it is because I have found better, more interesting or more pressing things to do. Last week I decided it was time to tackle the KNC and make some hard decisions about the fate of the recalcitrants dwelling there in.

This escaped! As far as I remember it went to the corner about Christmas last year for the sin of not working properly. As often happens with lace, I repeated the same row about 3 times, got the wrong number of stitches 3 times and cracked it once! Off to the KNC it went and there it stayed. I bought it out again last week and finished it off.

Luna Moth Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski knit with 8ply Bendigo Cotton in black (well technically I think the colour is called 'Noir' but it's black). My original plan had been to knit a cotton shawl for the summer months, you know, when the evening cools and such. It has become a winter finish but I am sure it will useful none the less.

It was a kind of enjoyable knit. The pattern is not particularly intuitive and it easy to mess up if you lapse in concentration. Would I do it again? Probably not.

The KNC isn't empty yet although this has managed to escape and is currently being finished.

That looks like the Peasy :)

I have a WIP box now, but the Vivian I started in 2008 is in the corner of the cupboard under some clothes. I think that might be the Naughty Naughty Knitting Corner
