So after the kind comments last week about people enjoying seeing what I’m making for the Fuzzy Thistle shop, I have decided to carry on posting the photos on these weekly updates.
That little red haired Christmas Elf looks mischievous to me!
Baubles and Picture
I’m almost too embarrassed to tell you the latest mistakes I have made in the knitting of Such a Winter’s Day by Heidi Kirrmaier. It’s ridiculous! See earlier post about the errors previously. The latest mistakes were making decreases when I should have been doing increases after waist shaping! Tinked back and fixed.
But worse, I cast on the sleeve based on size M1 not M2, when I got to the elbow I realised!!! Ripped it out, thank goodness I’d left the waste yarn at the start.
Once I’ve finished both arms and cowl neck I will go back to the body and make it as long as I can…within reason. I can’t wait for it to be finished, the weather is cold now.
Apologies for the photo.
My friend Jane, aka Woolly Birdie, set up the Cromarty Yarn Club recently and we had our first session last Sunday between 2pm and 4pm. It will be every fortnight and a great opportunity to hang out with other knitters. There were at least 20 people who came along! As Jane is a busy mum, works and is doing an architectural technology degree (i.e. is superwoman), I offered to set up a group on Facebook and Ravelry for it. It’s about a 35 min drive for me to get there, but it’s another opportunity to get out of the house and speak to people.
I also met a friend for a dog walk and lunch at the Bad Girls Bakery earlier in the week which was lovely, as we’d not seen each other since June and she recently got engaged. 🙂
