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

November is almost over…

… so how is everyone getting on with various challenges? My sweater is nearly finished, so I’m sure that tomorrow it’ll be finished and ends sewn in and all that jazz! It’s finally getting to the point that I’m getting rather excited about the fact that I’ve actually knitted a sweater!!!!

Here is is now (all that is left is 1(yes, you read that right, one!!!) row of colourwork then the cuffs! So excited!)


(Please excuse the cramped photo, I had to put my socks on to dry this morning after realising that I’ve only got 2 clean pairs (and one’s on me!)). I’ve got a plan for December which involves quite a lot of sock yarn…

I realised the other day that I’ve finished 9 (and 3/4) pairs of socks so far this year. It was on track forΒ  a round dozen, but then I had to knit this sweater, so… But anyway, I think that I can knit 2 (and a bit) pairs of socks in a month, especially since Uni is about to break up, thereby giving me about 6 extra hours a week. (I’m glossing over the cross stitch I need to do…, that’ll get done as well, honest!)

But that means that I need more sock yarn, since the sock yarn I’ve got has all been ear-marked for quite complicated socks, and I *do* know better than to think I can knit 2 pairs of complicated socks in a month! So, yarn shopping I must go! (And it’s totally allowed since I just got paid!)

So, next week there will be stash photos, and a finished jumper, and clues for December’s cross stitch block (and you may get it on Friday evening, as I need to cook a massive dinner on Saturday)! Lucky you guys! Makes up for these rather boring posts this month while I plug away at my sweater!

And that reminds me- November’s block. Well done to everyone who guessed Little Red Riding Hood. I’m still rather confused about the snow, but there we go!

See you all in December!

    Lovely looking jumper, well done.

  4. I love the yarns you can get for knitted socks, but never tried to knit some. Quite a skill, I think, so well done. Also, the sweater looks great πŸ™‚
