Wool on Sundays – 165 (Finally a Finish!)

Welcome to Wool on Sundays!

I’ve been starting to wonder if I’ll ever post here again, let alone make another Wool on Sundays post, but, apart from this morning when we had a sunny intermission, the weather has been horrible here and I’ve finally finished the Blue Cable Jumper.

Looking back, I see that in April I only had the sleeves and neckband of this jumper to do and I said, ‘I’m not in a big rush to get this finished’. At the time I was thinking a week or two. Since then, I have sometimes wondered whether I’d ever get it made but, at last, it is done!

I’m now UFO free and knitting weather has certainly arrived so, hopefully, I will be back on December 1st with the next Wool on Sundays.

If you have any yarn themed posts, 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 non-woollen fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links.

Wool on Sundays – 164 (A Little Ice Cream)

Welcome to the August edition of Wool on Sundays!

It has been very hot here, lately. Much too hot for knitting really but I did make a couple of small ice creams. I made them for my Endeavourers quilt but then decided it already had too much going on.

Should you happen to want to make some ice cream appliques, though, or join a few into an ice cream bunting they are made very simply and quickly as follows:

Cones – cast on 11st and work top down in garter stitch.

Row 1: knit to end

Row 2: knit to end

Row 3: k2tog, knit to last 2 st, k2tog

Repeat these three rows until 3st remain. Knit two more rows and k3tog. Fasten off by passing yarn through remaining st.

Ice Cream – Join yarn to first cast on stitch (top of cone). Insert crochet hook into this stitch and make a loop. Work 12 dtr (2 wraps round hook) into centre stitch (6th) of cone top, insert hook into last cast on stitch of cone top, pull though a loop and fasten off.

My garden, alas, continues to be an endless endeavour but the nights are slowly drawing in and surely we are due some rainy days soon, and I will be less a stranger to my Makery and blog. I wish you the happiest of weeks wherever you are : )

Wool on Sundays – 163 (A little bit woolly)

Welcome to Wool on Sundays!

And thank you for visiting my long abandoned blog :) At last, this month, I have managed to get back to a very little woolliness and I’m on the last arm of this jumper that I started months ago.

You can probably guess why! The garden, alas, goes ever onwards with the pending new hopefully-destined-to-be-stormproof greenhouse having escalated into a major landscaping project.

But, hopefully, an end is in sight and, even more hopefully, it will all be worth it.

With the shortening days, surely I will get back to some crafting and blogworld soon…
