Happy New Year.

I am making steady progress with the Owlet for my craft swop. There have been some sizing amendments along the way (I want it to be perfect and discussing sizes by message can be surprisingly tricksy). I realised I had forgotten the body increases so had to rework THE ENTIRE BODY but that was fine as it was relaxing knit stitch all the way. This Cascade 128 yarn knits up really quickly and is so easy to work with.

My super clever husband fixed my blog last week after someone kindly let me know the comments function had gone haywire. Sorry if you got caught up with techno frustration, please let me know if you have any problems.

I hope your year has been yarn filled so far and I am looking forward to hopping over and catching up with you soon.

Linking up with Nicole and Ginny.

      Thank you! I’m a beginner so it is highly achievable definitely. The first sweater I knit was Flax by tincanknits. It’s free on Ravelry and has a very good online tutorial to walk you through the steps if you fancy looking it up. It has a top down construction where as the owlet is bottom up, not that I find that a huge difference. The Flax is a lovely sweater, quite a simple design. I adore my son in it even though it’s rather snug now! Hope that helps, feel free to shout me with any other questions. Good luck and hope to see your sweater project soon 🙂

    You are making awesome progress! I’m so impressed. A project like this intimidates me. I have a pattern for some fingerless mitts I want to try, but I haven’t dug in yet, because I know it’s going to take some brain power. It requires knitting in the round and I’ve never done that before. Ack!

      Deborah, I just know you will get on great! Mittens would require DPNs which can be a bit fiddly I find – I am sure you could do it but I wonder if something using circular needles would be easier to get you started? Knitting in the round is great – no seaming! Look forward to seeing your progress 😉

      Thank you very much Zena, it really is a wonderful shade of grey blue. I think I will have to knit something for my family in this colour.

    I tried to comment on the squirrel sweater about how I was becoming a knitting stalker because I was so excited to see the finished project. I pressed send several times and hoped that it didn’t actually send several times making me REALLY look like a stalker haha! I’m glad comments are working now :). Sweaters sound out of my league, but I will check out the pattern you mentioned above! Can’t wait to see the owlet come along!

      Oh that is so sweet of you to keep trying. I am sorry, so frustrating when there are technical problems. Thank you for perceiving with me! I think you will be great with a sweater – go for it!
