Well, the sleeves are now set in! It almost looks like a jumper now, there’s just the collar to tackle, but I’m waiting for a quiet, childless moment when I don’t have anything else to do (!) to pick up the large number of stitches required around the neck opening without loosing count.
Today I’m revealing a new crochet pattern for these very pleasing inter-linked rings, and in addition to just the pattern, I have also created a complete kit to make it super-easy for you to run these up.

Time for a quick update on progress with my jumper!
I’m knitting a jumper from the DROPS Design Ginny pattern and I’m now on Round 77, which considering the last few weeks are the busiest of the year for me, counts as formidable progress.
More new additions to my shop this week! These little trees are now rivalling my pinecones as my favourite things to make. It’s far too early for real Christmas trees (we’re a week-before-Christmas family) but I’ve had such a lot of fun decorating these tiny treasures.
I decided it was time to address the elephant in the corner of the room. Well, the unfinished project in the bag in the corner of the room. There are about 150 projects I want to make for friends and family for Christmas, but my guilt won’t let me, till I’ve sorted out this out. (more…)
When you run your business in snippets of time snatched here and there, a lot of projects take a very long time from first idea to fruition (my Crochet Dreams Colouring Book was definitely one of those). So it’s rather lovely when occasionally something sparks and takes light very quickly.
This week I’ve had one of these surprise turnarounds which has been great fun.
Now, let’s not think of this as a Christmas crochet kit, because that would be far to scary. Let’s think of this as a pre-Christmas project, because you want to make your ornaments in plenty of time, right?
