On my needles...

Like many folk who read and comment, I've always got a craft project 'on the go'.

I've been making a beautiful knitted lace cardigan for some weeks now for a friend, I'm on the last piece now, but it's heavy going - not in the weight of the yarn, as that is alpaca and silk - but in the time it is taking to produce.  It's in a peacock blue and will look stunning when it's finished.

I have to move my hands into different positions to avoid arthritis aches, so I have other things going alongside this current mammoth task.

Today I'm completing a knitted dog in DK, and yesterday I did a couple of alterations using the sewing machine.

With an eye on the date, I have plans for some Christmas makes I need to complete too - and will shortly be posting my 'how to have a frugal Christmas' ideas if that would help anyone else?

Back now to the knitting!

Leave me a comment and tell me what you are currently crafting!



  1. Very much looking forward to your frugal Christmas tips.

  2. On my needles are hats and mitts, I can only knit in the round, sewing stuff together doesn't work for me, look forward to your tips.

  3. I'm making a baby blanket for a pregnant colleague.

  4. I also look forward to your Christmas frugal tips. I've already advised close family that we're cutting back this year - looked back at me like I was mad!!

  5. Since the beginning of the year I have been soldiering on with a patchwork Christmas stocking for my grand-daughter. (There were some weeks when I couldn't be bothered.) I'm not a sewer (I don't have a machine, yet) but I dabble with patchwork. My stumbling block was the lining, but my sister-in-law has very kindly offered to do this for me. Two weeks ought to see it finished from my input. When that is done I am going to knit a Christmas jumper for the same grand-daughter for a school Christmas jumper day.
    I am also looking forward to your Christmas frugal tips.

  6. Funny all my projects have now been put on hold or dumped all together....to busy trying to sort my path out I guess.
