So, having a WIP week might have been pushing it with the size of the projects I’ve undertaken lately – I’m still beavering away on all of them… oops!
Having said that, despite some annoying pattern mishaps (an advert for hiring a tech editor if ever I saw one), I’m absolutely loving it and having a great time!
My Tunisian crochet jumper has taken up most of my focus. I’ve now completed the front and back, and I’m halfway through one sleeve after just a few hours’ work – so I’m confident I’ll be wearing it by the weekend!
It’s been such a wonderful project – although this was the one with the pattern errors, so there have been some frustrations. (Just for me, not for Ted, as you can see he’s already a fan!)
The King Cole Cottonsoft DK is fantastic to work with – it’s so soft and hasn’t split once. I still love my cheap acrylics, but I have a funny feeling this will become a permanent fixture in my stash.
The three colours I’m using are to die for – Jade, Ecru and Coral – I get a little thrill every time I set my eyes on the Coral section perched atop my green and white stripes.
Much as I’m excited to wear my jumper, I’m almost a little sad to be reaching the end!
On the bright side though – I think I’m on course to have a lot of leftover yarn, so I think I will be using these colours for a few more projects – HAPPY FACE!
I’m still debating which project to finish off after the jumper – I absolutely must finish one off, even though every fibre of my being wants to start another project.
I think the mystery blanket might be next on the hit list – I had a little play with it on Sunday and it really does work up at a great speed. I’m excited to get this one off the list and delivered to its (hopefully!) happy owner.
So… not quite a finished project yet as promised last week. It will be next time! I’m SO excited!
