Stranded Knitting

I’m knitting a lovey jumper for a friend’s little one at the moment. It is ostensibly a first birthday present but is several months late… Ho hum.

Anyway the pattern is Anders which I bought from a ravelry but it has forced me to tackle a knitting style I’ve been avoiding…stranded colour work. My lovely friend V gave me a quick tutorial before I started and I’ve consulted youtube a few times but all in all I’m pretty pleased with how it is going.  Only problem is the deadline for completion is Friday and I still need to knit both sleeves and complete a big project for work. Realistically it isn’t going to work out but I’m going to try.

Too many projects on the go…

I don’t normally do this but I’ve got project overload at the moment but am enjoying it.

My jumper


The jumper for me (that seems to be never ending but at least now is long enough to cover my nipples, perhaps TMI!).


Another neighborly as they are super cute for a friends 3 yo who needs wrapped in love as she and her Ma have had a tough old time.


AND then there is my lace. However, I’m only at the boring bit  so it is currently my travel knitting.  I did have an expedition into covent garden though to choose some beautiful beads and buy the worlds smallest crochet hook so watch this space for future beading adventures!
