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

Hey guys!

So, I’m back now. And despite not having any time to write last week (deadlines are a bitch!) I did find enough time to do quite a lot of my sweater. Here is where it’s at now:


I’m doing both the sleeves at the same time, as I need to decrease every inch and I don’t really want to count rows twice! So I’m fudging it, but both sides will be the same because I’m doing them together

I also found time to stitch up this cute Christmas Card- my laptop needed to upgrade to Windows 8.1, so while it was busy doing that I made this little thing! It’s a very quick stitch all in all 🙂


And… that’s about it for me! I’ve either been busy working, or busy knitting (or procrastinating, but let’s not go there!). Which, all in all makes for a rather boring blog post! So, some more hints for November’s block…hmm…

The main characters of this tale are:

the bad guy (a wolf. In some versions, a second wolf is also included)

the main characters (a little girl and her grandmother)

the supporting character (a huntsman on the hunt for the wolf)

Let’s see what people make of these!

Next week I’ll reveal the fairy tale, and hopefully the finished jumper. Wish me luck!

  1. That’s a good idea about doing both sleeves at once.

  2. Yup, your sweater is looking fabulous. Interested in the both-sleeves-at-once thing. Clever idea. Like knitting two socks at once, I assume? (Says she who has never knitted two of anything at once.)

  3. Your jumper looks lovely, and doing the sleeves at the same time is a great idea if you have so many decreases.
