Knitting. That is all.

I can feel myself returning to knitting and I can feel the yearning to hold some needles in my hands creeping though my veins. The first sign is trawling patterns on Ravelry, the next is actually transforming some WIPs into FOs and then I know I’m definitely resmitten (is that a word?) when I order a kit for a sweater. I came across this and fell in love with the colours and the simple slouchy design. It reminds me a little of the first hand knitted sweater I remember wearing, made by my Mum that was a ‘sloppy Joe’ 80s style in purple mohair. I absolutely loved that jumper and wore it for a long time passed the time it was fashionable, if purple mohair ever was!
I’ve finally finished my hand spun Caithness Jacob wool sweater. I’m really pleased, it’s the first thing I’ve made from fleece to final garment, including designing the pattern. It fits well and I’m looking forward to showing it off at my spinning group.
