I do lots of craft sometimes. I like to have something in my hands when I'm watching TV or something. I like crocheting mostly!
This is one of my two ripple blankets. The ripple is the kind of stitch - it's like a wave. This one has a weird colour combo - purple and camo blue?! What was I thinking. I picked out the colours ages ago, because I only crochet my blankets rarely. They're nice to come back to after ages!
This one is knee-rug sized. I still have to make it about twice as wide. That'll take me another year or two at this rate!
While in Sweden I started knitting a jumper for Charles. I managed to do the whole torso! I found the pattern online at GarnStudio. They have thousands of free knitting patterns online, it's an ad for their yarn. I saw some of their yarn in Sweden (it's a Swedish company I think) and it was really nice.
The bottom is ribbed and the top section is moss stitch. The rest is stocking stitch. Made on a circular needle! So now I have to do the sleeves, but they're supposed to be done in the round on double pointed needles. I find double pointed needles WAY TOO FIDDLY so I'm thinking of just doing it flat and then sewing a seam up the arm. I also need to do the neckband.
Stuff Doing! All The Time!
