I was going to share an update with you on Wednesday but..I was sooo close to finishing this, I really just wanted to get it done. I put the last stitch in on Thursday night….although I was playing some SERIOUS yarn-chicken for the last few rows! This was how much I had left as I […]
You’ll be proud of me…I am knitting sleeves!
Hello, for those that have read some of my other posts, you’ll know I don’t like knitting sleeves. I am however focussed on my January 2018 Goals, one of which is to complete this Everything Nice Hoodie. I finished the body last week and so I had no option BUT to knit the sleeves… When […]

So, you lovely lot! I hope that you have had a good “between Christmas and New Year”. Some of you will have had to work I know, I hope its not been too tough! Others (like me!) will hopefully have had a break from the day-to-day. I’ve not had an awful lot of time for […]

Crazy Stripes Cardigan Update
I’m feeling the “pull” of a new project. My phase as a monogamous knitter may be over!! Last night I spotted an error that I couldn’t live with (it was an actual hole!) in the sleeve of my crazy-stripes cardigan and had to rip-back 20 rows…!!! I was so sad and a bit cross!! I […]
