Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Just a quick post today…

because I’ve got a load of work to do, and I really want to get back to my sweater!

But first of all, November’s block. Clearly the hints given last week weren’t enough, so here’s a photo of what I did last weekend (before I decided that December was plenty big enough to do the rest of November’s block, as well as December’s and finishing the border.

So here’s what has been done so far

OUAT23I’m not really quite sure why there’s snow. I mean, I know that it’s November’s block, and therefore Winter, and therefore snow makes sense, but the story is set in the Summer, because there are flowers. And in the Winter, I can’t see any family being happy with an elderly lady in ill health living by herself ages away! And yes, those are the clues for this week! Let’s see what you make of them, and next week I’ll give some more if people still aren’t getting it.

Most of my spare crafty time has gone into my sweater, and I think it’s looking pretty good so far. This is almost as far as I’ve got so far

11.04Since this pic was taken, I’ve split for the sleeves and done half of the band of stars. I need to get my arse into gear if I want to finish this in November, but with so much stuff happening at Uni it’s difficult to find the time to really get into it! Hopefully I’ll be able to spend lots of time on it tomorrow!

Right, that’s everything crafty from me I think. I’ll see you all next week when hopefully I’ve churned out lots more on my sweater!
