Bright Knitted Jumper Project

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!

On the desk...

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.

Very Berry Knitting Complete (Part 2)

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!

On the desk...

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!

Very Berry Knitting (Part 1)

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!

On the desk...

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!

Finished Projects – Nerdy Knitting

I’ve been meaning to share this for a while now, I finished a fun nerdy knitting project around November time; and it didn’t really fit in with the Christmas content! This was a fun project, trying something new, and creating something just for myself!

I’d no secret I’m a tad on the nerdy side, and I’m a total Star Wars fan, though I’ll confess to preferring the original trilogy overall. I’m not a huge fan of every film, but I’m not here to start an argument over which is the best or the worst, I’m here to talk about adorable and a bit silly; crafty; nerdy knitting…

When we were away in Somerset this month, I ended up buying some yarn; because I had the mad urge to knit while I was away and didn’t bring anything with me…

I had all these intentions this year, of making a scarf rather like this one:
