Ombre Jumper finished

Finished this today. I’m mostly happy with it although it’s not as nice as the one that inspired it. It’s a little shorter than I’d usually like and being as it’s bottom up I would have needed to add rows at the beginning but I didn’t so I shall just have to get used toContinue reading “Ombre Jumper finished”

Ombre Jumper

Despite all the things I could (should) be finishing I have just started a new jumper. I came to it in a roundabout way as I first saw it on Kick Arse Crochet (love the blog title!) and seeing it there made me go get a copy of Simply Crochet where this pattern could beContinue reading “Ombre Jumper”

Kitty jumper for Abi

I’m making the Envision Cardigan by Heidi May, using Knitcraft Get Your Fluff On. Loving the yarn andContinue reading “Envision Cardi”

Orchid Cardi Progress

I have made it past the armholes!  Still a long way to go though. It’s so pretty! It’s not going to stay in this pattern all the way. It has a kind of waist band which is simple dc rows and sc rows (tr & dc in UK terms), and then it flairs out withContinue reading “Orchid Cardi Progress”

Orchid Cardi

I really should finish one thing before I start another! I started this before I finished the Jade jumper, but at least I then went back and finished the jumper off rather than leaving it languishing. This pattern is lovely, but it’s quite slow work. The WI Soft and Silky yarn is really making theContinue reading “Orchid Cardi”
