A new project …


I came across a call out for dog jackets for the local lost dogs home.  You can find the pattern here and information here. So I started one last night at swimming lessons.  I needed a new project that I can carry with me.

Ms A’s jumper is almost finished.  I have used the side step hem pattern that I used for my BWM milky fibre jumper in this post here.  This time I have used Bendigo Woollen Mills Bold Bamboo in rouge.

All that is left to do is sew up the seams and knit the neck band.  Should be able to finish this before it gets warm again 🙂

And a finished shirt quilt from hubby’s old work shirts.  I have more shirts to work through.

The family have put in a few requests for cards so I need to find some mojo and inspiration to get started.  Hubby has requested a funny male card for his boss.  At the moment I’m thinking of using a digital image – with all the images I have in my stash none of them seem the right one!  Does that happen to anyone else?

Until next time

  1. Love the colour of Ms A’s jumper – red is so good for winter. Beautiful. My daughter is making small felt hearts in the 1000 Hearts project; they send you the kit and you make the hearts and felt them or add a sewn item – they are tiny. she used my Big Shot to cut out some hearts from the felt and it was one of the smaller dies she used. I cannot do them because of my hands. She carries them around with her and does them when she can.

  2. Love your knitting projects – the jumper is lovely (you are so quick – didn’t you just buy that wool?) and the dog jumper sounds perfect for taking with you. Bet the dogs love them! Your shirt quilts are gorgeous.
    Mmmm a ‘funny’ male card – can think of lots of ideas, but don’t have the stamps to carry them out. Do you have the Crazy Birds? I feel you could use that with a computer sentiment – they are crazy if not funny:)

    1. Thanks Ann. I haven’t added the Crazy birds to my stash yet – I have been tempted seeing all the great inspiration.
      The red yarn I’ve had a little while – actually a year! I started knitting this a few weeks ago though so yes a pretty quick knit. Need to work through the stash so I can get onto the lovely greys I just bought 🙂
