Wool on Sundays – 146 (Growing Slowly)


Welcome to October’s Wool on Sunday! I don’t have any nice new yarn finishes to share so I thought I’d start this post with a photo of one of my trusty knitting companions – Poppy of the beautiful ears!


The dubious green cardigan has grown but, despite my claims in my last Wool on Sundays post, it has not been a September finish.


I have been trying to cram all my working info into the edge of a lace chart (I won’t decode because it’s not the greatest system!) but now I’ve got it all onto one needle it should become more portable and pick up speed.


Meanwhile, I did have a prettier finish this month.

Truth to tell, I have been sorely tempted to embark on more new and pretty projects but I am resolved to do nothing whatsoever else with yarn until the green cardigan is finished. Do you get tempted to start new things halfway through a project?

On a cheerier note, we have lots of apples :)


If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. The next Wool on Sundays will be on Sunday 5th November.

    I love the little blanket, the petals in the squares are just gorgeous! The jumper is coming on well too, it’s another lovely autumn colour. Hope you’re well 😊

    How I adore Springer Spaniels and their floppy ears and in my Maisie’s case, bad, fuzzy hair days, which just happens to be every day. Your Poppy is so very sweet. I think your green cardigan is racing along. Yes, I too always dream of prettier projects whilst knitting something. Lucky you to have all those delicious looking apples just ready to be picked.

    Poppy is a beauty :) Your green cardigan will be a lovely finish when it’s ready for that step – sometimes it takes a while for projects to ripen! I’m always starting new things before finishing the older ones – my mind races from project to project because I want to make them ALL, lol. There just isn’t enough time (or money!) to do that – I wish there was ;) Miss Dolly looks very pleased with her blanket!

    That’s a gorgeous dolly blanket! Love the photo of your Poppy; what a sweetie 💗 Oh yes, I certainly can relate to thinking of exciting new projects despite unfinished ones but isn’t that part of being a creative soul? Lol

    Your dog is adorable :-) And yes, I often get tempted to start something new while working on a long project. Sometimes I give in. At this time I’m having only 2 wip’s.
    Love that little blanket you made and the cardigan looks very nice, I think you will be wearing it a lot ( at least I would!).
    Have a great day, Sigrid

    It feels like you will need your green cardigan soon Janine. It will be good for walking Poppy. We have a black and white version of Poppy. He is our second Spaniel. Your Crochet Cradle blanket is beautiful Janine. Take care now. Marion
