Craftiness


I’ve been sick of late and so has Eoin. This of course was for most of my holidays. I had planned to do a bunch of things and finish off some sewing projects, but that didn’t happen as I needed to clear out the craft room first and was too sick for that. But I did manage to do a bit of knitting, as I can at least do that while vege-ing out in front of a DVD or while watching Eoin play.

I have a nice book with some kids patterns in it - Essential Kids by Debbie Bliss and I managed to get the zipped gilet finished. I ended up not putting on all the pockets as I just wanted to get it finished and he’s not into pockets just yet anyway. It fits him now with room so I should get a couple of seasons out of it. It’s perfect for this spring weather where a full jacket or jumper isn’t quite warranted but something a little warmer around the chest is needed.

After finishing that I then decided to make the hoodie from the same book. I’m making the hoodie in a size 3/4T as he has enough for this size and won’t be wearing much in the way of winter gear until around his birthday next year.

This is the pattern I’m working on

I’ve finished the front, back and both sleeves and I’m currently working on the hood. I make a mistake in one of the sleeves and didn’t realise until I was halfway through the second one, so I had to unpick most of that first sleeve and redo it. Frustrating, but at least that’s done now. I’m also glad I’ve finished all the cable work. Eoin has run off and hidden my cable needle and I’m going to have to wait until I can do a full search to find it  Oh well, it will turn up eventually. I’ve chosen a khaki green for Eoin’s jumper. Hopefully it won’t take me too long to finish and then I can post pics of it.

    These are quick to make up and are a good way to use up all those little scraps of yarn. I use DK/8ply acrylic, but use up whatever you have on hand.…
