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

Wolf focus again this week!

We were here, at 20.5 hours

My vague original plan was to go up and around anti-clockwise, which I started doing for a while, and then I got bored and decided to move the fabric and head over to the bottom right corner. I’m still having fun with this, but it’s starting to creep towards the ‘I really want this done already’, which is annoying. My normal routine when cross stitch hits the ‘finish me already’ is to stick it in time-out, which I don’t really want to do (because I want it finished…see the problem?). It can stay out for now, mostly because nothing else really needs finishing, so I can concentrate on it.

Anyway, 5.5 hours further along (to a grand total of 26 hours so far on this thing), we’re at here

As I mentioned rather excitedly at the weekend, I’m not only about 7 inches away from being finished on my mum’s Christmas shawl. Excellent news, but no new photo because a) it looks exactly the same as last time and b) I left it at work. Oops. Use your imagination πŸ˜‰

And now for the bonus stash enhancement: I got myself some new interchangeable knitting needles πŸ˜€

These are the addi clicks long tip interchangeables. The 4.5mm needles are missing because naturally I had to try them out πŸ˜‰ I managed to unclick them within one round of knitting the sleeves, but I think that was because I hadn’t twisted them in properly (they have to go in quite a way, then sideways then pull out a bit). Having rescued all my stitches and reconnecting them, they seem to be working fine now πŸ™‚

And because I can’t just order knitting needles from the online yarn shop, I had to get some more sock yarn too πŸ™‚

This is 400g of sock yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners, in a variety of colours. Socks!
