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

So maybe next time will be posted on Friday?

This could’ve been posted on Friday, but I wanted to wait until I gave the recipient her gift before showing it off here 🙂

I actually managed to knit the entire cozy (including a gauge swatch!!!) in one day. Actually, I cheated a little on the swatch- the swatch is doubling up as the bit that holds the bow in place, so yay for double duty! This was knit in DK yarn (no idea on needle size, other than ‘quite small’) flat, and seamed afterwards. The seam is then hidden in the bow bit.

I’ve also been hard at work knitting my cardigan with lots of cables (which was put on hold a while back *cough* July *cough* ) and have just finished my first sleeve 🙂

Well, that’s all I’ve been working on so far. I’m planning on starting something for a swap, so there won’t be any photos of that while it’s going on *waves to squarebird*.

Also, just a quick note to say that I haven’t forgotten that I’ve got a knitmeter which is saying that I haven’t knit anything this year, I’m waiting on an electric scales so I can get accurate measurements 🙂

  1. How nice that you’re making progress! I can’t point to one single thing I have finished this year! That cardigan will be gorgeous.

  2. I’m not sure what the ‘cosy’ is – but I like the colours. The cabling on the sleeve is very striking!

  3. loving the lavender piece.. is that cable knitting? wooo.. i so got to try my hands on cable sometime soon.

  4. The little mug cozy is great!!! What a fun, quick pattern and excellent use of the “gauge swatch” 🙂 The sleeve looks beautiful! Can’t wait to see the rest of your gorgeous sweater! Thanks for linking up!

  5. Looks great. I love the pattern on the sleeve.Look forward to seeing the rest.

  6. I love the yarn you used for the cozy! I like cozies for water bottles, too. Quick projects are so satisfying. Beautiful cable knitting.

  7. […] then I picked it up again in January, when I posted about the finished sleeve, and started the other. Which got under-way fine. But then […]
