Even though you wouldn’t know it from my blog I’ve been busy knitting – however as most of it has been for submissions I haven’t been able to blog about it!
I finished the project with the top down short row sleeve caps.Â I’m very pleased with how it has turned out, I think it is an easier way of doing sleeve caps than trying to sew them in.Â I also love to knit sleeves top down as you know that they will be just the right length.Â Hopefully I can publish the pattern here or elsewhere in the next few months.
As I can’t show any current projects I thought I’d dig out a few ones that I worked on last year but never put the photos up.
I made this Urchin for my sister last Christmas from Jaeger Natural Fleece.Â This yarn was wonderful for the project and I loved this colour.Â However I also used this yarn in navy to make a jumper for my husband.Â This in itself wasn’t a great idea as he never wears jumpers but it ended up so heavy that it has been renamed his ‘horse-blanket’.Â However I think I may borrow it for really, really cold days!
Speaking of the weather, the summer has finally arrived here.Â We went to Jamesfort in Kinsale over our long holiday weekend and it was so perfect.
