The jumper of doom is nearly complete. I am probably about half way throught the yoke and it seems like the end is in sight.
It’s now so big that it’s impossible to take anywhere, so I have been able to go back to knitting Mr M’s incredibly late Christmas socks on the train and at work. All I need to do now is cast off – I’m thinking of trying the one from Knitty that Brenda Dayne recommended in her podcast a couple of months ago.
I’ve started my preparation for Wonderwool and Woolfest. I dyed up 3kg of Oatmeal BFL and Oatmeal BFL/Silk on Friday. I’ve also been developing some new colourways and trying out some new yarns.
There’s some Superwash BFL/Nylon sock, some Superwash Merino/Seacell, Silk/Seacell laceweight, Silk/Camel and Alpaca Soy in there. The Alpaca/Soy is my favourite and I’m going to get a LOT more of that in.
I’m liking how the days are slowly getting longer and it feels like spring is on the way. I really can’t wait to get this jumper done and to get back to some fun projects for me!
