This says it all.

I have decided to delve into the bottom, the very bottom, of my knitting bag and retrieve the longest outstanding WIP!

The dreaded Moss Stitch cushion cover.

Some of you may have read about my dislike for this stitch.


If I show you the date on the magazine page from which this pattern is taken maybe you'll understand.

I didn't think it had been around that long. At least the magazine is still in existence.

My shame is complete when you see how close I was to finishing it.

About 15cm to the finish.

So with a visit to my very, very clever seamstress (Mummy dear) due I thought I'd dispose of it.

There will be 2 skeins of Rowan Tweed DK left over appx 240yds. Is that too thick or even not enough to knit a Monkey or would it have to be a Baby Gorilla?!

May even get a gift bag started.

One things for sure I will get a bottle of something Red started.

Enjoy your weekend.

I hate moss stitch too and won't consider a pattern that has more than a few rows!! Good luck with the cushion cover!

I love the look of moss stitch, but it is oh-so-tedious to knit. Good luck getting this WIP finished up so free yourself for something infinitely more interesting to do! Happy weekend.

I love how moss stitch looks, but it can be oh so tedious to knit a lot of it! Gorgeous Rowan yarn though, I'm sure you'll find a good use for the leftover skeins :-)
