Tuck Stitch Sweater Finished

Yay! I’ve finished the tuck stitch sweater….

Tuck Stitch Sweater knitted in Dartmoor Yarn Company DK Ryeland pure wool

 

It’s very bulky – takes up the room of two sweaters when folded up in the wardrobe – which is going to be great for keeping me warm, but does make one look rather bulky. I think for this reason I’ll stick to cables in future.

I also don’t like the neck, but I can wear it with a scarf to disguise that. (Yes, I know I could frog the neck and do it again, but you know how I feel about frogging.)

In the craft room

Thought I’d have a wee roundup of the small, crafty jobs I’be been working on over the last couple of weeks.

Not very taxing, but definitely well over due,  I meant to paint our old tired old nest of tables 5 years ago when we moved here…

They’ve definitely seen better days

I’ve also made some dryer balls – I have a few orders for them, but have made some extras too if anyone else wants some .

I’m not knitting as much as I used to as my thumb’s still not great, but I have knitted two sleeves for my sweater…

As I say, nothing amazing, but satisfying to be getting jobs crossed off the list and the sweater nearly finish.

Until next time,
