I first started this bright knitted jumper project ages ago; and keep putting it down to work on other things! Lately though I have picked it back up again, to work on it a little more; and thought I’d share a little update!
When I started knitting this jumper I was going to make it purely with rectangles as a super quick and easy slouch jumper, though my limited skill has improved to the extent I am working on slightly better sleeves.

We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!
This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Yes, you read it here a week ago, the knitting was complete, so what’s happening now?!! What’s with the Very Berry Knitting – Extra?!
When I had finished knitting before, I still had some yarn left over, and of course that called for making something else…

SO still in lockdown, and still working on Love Tree, so I thought I’d share a bit about our rainy week, and of course a cross-stitch update too!
What does a rainy week mean for us? Well, lots of movie watching, a bit of reading, finally actually finishing tidying the craft room, and of course cross-stitching!!

Yes, you read it here first, very berry knitting complete! I’ve actually managed to finish something I started! I know, I’m impressed too!
Though I will say; I have since made something else; which I’ll be sharing next week; to use up the remaining yarn (It STILL didn’t!) but I’m at least quite proud that I’ve used a fair bit of it!

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!
So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

It’s about time for some Christmas crafting isn’t it! I thought I’d start this year with some easy yarn crafts you can do at home; to add to your decorating!
I have quite a few handmade decorations at this point; but I can’t help myself at this time of year. Here are some easy crafty ideas, for you to try!

So we’re all back to normal after the April A-Z Challenge, but of course things for the last few weeks things have been far from “normal”. To begin, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to any keyworkers out there, whether frontline NHS and medical staff, or those working in shops and other businesses keeping us, our families and friends all safe and hopefully healthy. My heart goes out to those affected by the coronavirus, whether literally, or in terms of stress from the lockdown, working from home, home schooling, or those who are lonely and isolated. We are all in this together!
I confess, the situation has been quite bearable here, the A-Z challenge has been something of a blessing really in terms of avoiding the weekly posts of what I’ve been up to! There is only so much you can really say considering I last worked on the 23rd March! So, here we are at the beginning of May and while I haven’t been up to much, I thought I’d share what has been going on this April!

Another project brought out of hibernation this week. I’ve been saying I’ll finish this for too long; but this fun bright jumper is going to be SO worth it! I’m really inspired to get this one done!
To banish this wintery grey and gloom, I’m making a point at the moment, to work on a bit of colourful fun!

There will be a few regular posts appearing here on The Craft Room and Beyond each week or so, as well as each month, and one of those weekly (or possibly fortnightly) updates will be “On the Desk” each or every other Wednesday, where l will head into the craft room and share what I’m up to…
