Pat's Jumper

Finally Pat's 20th hand jumper is finished and ready for him to wear. By the time the cats laid on it, if left unguarded or me trying it on when sewing it together.

Pat doesn't like to be on the blog and that's okay, so I have modeled the finished jumper.

Big and warm and lovely to look at. Jumpers not too bad either... lol This pattern is also available in lady sizes.

Close up of the cable pattern.

Close up of the sleeve pattern.

Now this one is out the way I can concentrate on other knitting projects at night.

Until next time.... hoo roo

Patrick's Jumper

As far as I have gotten so far today with Pat's jumper. Amy called in and we went out for a few hours shopping. Lost a lot of this afternoon I was gong to use for sewing up the jumper.

All that is left to do is sew the sleeves and then sew those sleeves into the arm area. The Pat can wear his jumper.

Not sure if this will be done after dinner tonight or left until tomorrow.

Millie has been sticking close to the jumper and if given the chance..... she's on the knitted pieces that I am not yet using.

Until next time....hoo roo

Now That it's Cold

We've had over 2 inches of rain and its lovely and cold. So this means I can now sit a whole sheep and a couple of cats on my lap and not over heat.

The sweater neck line is easy as to finish off, just 11 rows of knitting and then sew it all together. With some help from the fur kids.

Nothing excites the cats more than a woolen project being worked on when its cold. Millie grabbed the lap spot first and made herself comfy. This left poor Harley out in the cold. lol

I need to turn my knitting without disturbing the Grand-kitty......... what is a Nanna to do???

Eight of the eleven rows are now knitted and Pat is getting excited about wearing his new jumper.

Hope to have a photo up tomorrow of the finished sweater. mrgreen

Until next time....hoo roo

Couple Of Finished UFO's

Finally finished tiding up the last sock of my "Raspberry" Monkey socks last night. So now they are ready for me to wear in the cooler months. Can't believe they sat in my knitting box for about 4 weeks. eek

Just love the colour and pattern of these socks. While they sat in my knitting box I was busy knitting at night and also sewing.

I also have finished off the "Cat's Paw" scarf for the stall.

Knitted with Moda Vera sentiments taking 2 skeins.

Only 6 rows of pattern to this scarf. And you can get the pattern free here .

Looking for a little lower in day temperature and I can spend the day in natural light, sewing up Pat's Aran jumper.

Next to finish off, is the little pink baby dress. In between I am slowly knitting Pat's sweater with "Jet" yarn.

Until next time.... hoo roo
