So I finished a few projects, including my beautiful cabled scarf (see pic) and a lovely chunky jumper, and have managed to now pick up even more things to do. A hat for my friend Julie and a jumper for my nephew Oliver are next on the list.

Pattern for the cabled scarf coming soon.

Getting somewhere

I spent all last week worrying because I seemed to be getting nowhere with any of my projects. I had a scarf, a jumper, a pair of gloves and a sewing project on the go all at once. However, I have had a breakthrough today. The scarf is nearly finished and ready to go in my etsy shop.

It's made from a dusky pink wool and I am so proud of it. It's the first time I have really experimented with cabling and I can't wait to show you how it's worked out. I think I will post the pattern when it's ready (and I have time to sit down and write it).

Black Crochetted Fan Scarf

I love this scarf. I wear it all the time to bring a little bit of sophistication to my working day. This scarf made from 100% wool and is now for sale at my etsy shop and I can customise it for you if you would like the design in a different colour or perhaps would like a little sparkle or beading.
