Welcome, again, to Wool on Sundays!

Can you believe it’s November already? And at last, we are back in wool weather. Frosty nights and misty mornings and time for the crochet blankets to come out from their Summer hiding and for dark evenings knitting in the Makery.

You may remember this being knitted…and unknitted.

And now it is knitted again and, I think, this may be my favourite knitting ever, though perhaps I always think that about my latest finish :)

The rib is: (Right side) k1, p2 to last stitch k1 | (Wrong side) p1, k2 to last stitch p1

The texture is: (Right side) k1, p1 to last stitch k1 | (Wrong side) k to end

The yoke pattern was from a chart I found on pinterest, which didn’t lead to a source and I fitted it all (with a few adjustments) into the free ‘Afmæli – 20-year Anniversary Sweater’ by Védís Jónsdóttir.

The yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley Aran. I bought it in a sale and I believe the colours have been discontinued.

I’m thinking that by knitting and unknitting and re-knitting. I could probably avoid ever having to buy yarn again, We shall see :)


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 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 2nd December.

Just Improv


Today is the Endeavourers’ fourth quarterly reveal day and I’m very grateful to all my fellow members for their endless inspiration, encouragement and enthusiasm. I love the way this group prompts us to embark on new journeys with fabric that we should never otherwise have contemplated :)


This quarter’s theme was ‘Improv’ and I resolved to make something just improv – no stories, no pictures…


If you are a regular follower of my blog, you may have noticed I don’t really do abstract…


So this was certainly a very tricky theme for me and you can read more about my challenges this quarter and the process of making this quilt here.

Please visit The Endeavourers blog to see the improv quilts my fellow group members  have made. I’m sure it’s going to be a wonderful and varied collection and I can’t wait to see them all myself.

Version 3

Happy Sewing!

Work In Progress…


How has your October been?

I have made some progress on my Summer Stitching but not so much as I intended to and not enough to link up with the OMG Finish linky party. I had aimed to get the pages sewn up ready to be assembled into a book and I have done a fair bit but not met my challenge goal. I will, however, link up this project for November with a new goal of completing the whole thing by the end of the month.

I did start and finish a new knitting project, though. I will tell more about it on Sunday.


Now I must get back to the stitching!

Happy Samhain, Halloween or whatever day you celebrate tomorrow, if you celebrate a special day tomorrow. If not, I wish you a happy day anyway :D
