I haven’t posted any of my WIPs since before Christmas, so to help myself take stock and to share, here’s what I’m up to at the moment.
I’ve just cast off the colour block jumper I started back in August as car knitting. However, every time I had a long journey I worked on other pieces, so this only came out on local windy roads where I didn’t have to look. I’m really glad to be rid of it and I’m not even sure I like it. But I’ll sew it together and see.
I’m mostly on a one out, one in policy, so I’m holding off casting on the yellow sweater until I’ve sewn up the colour block jumper. However, I did cast on a jumper I’m knitting in secret for Lovely Husband’s Christmas present. Having to knit in secret probably means it will take all year.
I’m also ready to turn the heels on a pair of socks. I’ve been knitting these in the car in the dark, but the heel turns will need daylight.
On the crochet front I started the rabbit from Edward’s menagerie to get my hand back in to some amigarumi. Unfortunately the yarn’s not really suitable and is felting a bit and I’m not sure I have enough.
I’ve also a couple of top secret knitting projects on the go, but obviously can’t show you them.
That about sums up my current knitting and crochet, but I also wanted to ask those of you who use instagram, how you deal with double posting. I’ve just made a second attempt to get to grips with it, and I hold back from posting, because I don’t want to start repeating myself on my blog and borring those who read both. Any thoughts anyone?
I’m also planning on going to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia next month. If any of you are too, it would be great to meet up. So let me know if you are and want to.
Well that’s me for this week. Hope you all have a wonderful and creative weekend.
