There are lots of projects on the go at the moment. Mostly smaller projects - accessories and such. I am usually like to have a big jumper or something to work on as well but can't quite decide what to make next. I need to look through my vast collection of patterns and yarn for some inspiration.

I already mentioned that I hate sewing up my projects. It is the knitting that I enjoy and I can lose interest once taht part of a project is finished. The knitting for this lovely fluffy jumper was finished within a week but it then sat in the basket waiting to get sewn up for a couple of months. Finally got around to it and now have a lovely soft , warm jumper. The pattern was a charity shop find which featured a yarn very similar in appearance to the Drops Melody which I was wanting to use. The yarn was an absolute bargain, as always with Drops, and has knitted up beautifully.
On a final note, I made this entrelac beanie to try out a pattern that someone gave my husband in the pub. He said that a guy who knits hats was slightly baffled by the instructions and wondered if I could take a look. I guess entrelac seems that way at first but is actually very easy once you get into it.
