All knitting, all spinning, all the time

All knitting, all spinning, all the time

Dedicated knitter that I am, I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that crochet can be better for some things. Like frilly, ruffled tentacley things with many, many increases. If this hadn't been a knitting versus crochet "off", I would have done Jelly's arms very differently. (And I suspect quicker, easier, and without hurting my hands.) So instead of having 4 arms, he only has 3. I hope he doesn't mind.

I'm still here!

Hi all!

OMG!!  Look how long it's been since my last post!  I mean, I knew it'd been a while, but ... (cough cough) ... anyway ... I'm back now, & I'll try not to leave the gaps between postings so long.

So what have I been up to?
  • Spinning
  • Knitting (mainly socks)
  • Plodding away at Tafe (halfway now!)
  • Navigating for my Dad with his new little sports car at the Qld MX5 club runs
I've JUST finished a lovely cardi for my beautiful daughter, but as we all know by now:  I can't take a decent photo of something black without it looking like a black blob which could be ANYTHING.  Here's the Ravelry link to the pattern so you can see what it looks like.  (Just picture it in black - it looks fabulous!)  It's currently drying on my loungeroom floor, & looks amazing.  I may just have to make one for me too!  It's all done in one piece starting from the top of the hood (ingenious design) which does get a bit heavy to cart around near the end, but it's so worth it.

I've just been challenged to another "off" by my gorgeous friend D, so I'm ... off ... to find the perfect yarn for jellyfish.  Wish me luck!
