Vintage knitting and modern crochet...

I'm alternating between the modern crochet wristwarmers and the vintage knitted cardigan. The latter is now on 3.75mm needles which is a bit taxing for me but a little each day will get me there in the end. The crochet wristwarmers are in progress using a 2.5mm hook, I really am a glutton for punishment. I'm loving the tiny stitches on both projects.

Inside spreads of Pompom magazine as promised. The sweater is knitted, and as luck would have it I have a stash of grey Aran weight yarn in the right quantity! That might just be my next project. I may have to remind myself how to do wrapped stitches. I seem to have forgotten so much knitting since my crochet frenzy started.

The pattern for the cowl looks fairly involved. I will definitely have to save that for a day when I have a good stretch of uninterrupted time and a clear head.

Well that's me busy with yarn for the next few months! In between long court cases and late night police interviews M and I are hoping to book the same shepherd's hut again for a few nights (fingers crossed). Yarn, a simple hut with a view and a log burner, that's my idea of perfect.
