Late WIP Wednesday

Halloween, half term and a Toddler group to run. Been a bit busy today to say the least! And I don't even have a decent WIP photo to show you :-(


Here is my Owl's sweater, I've done all the shaping increases and decreases and am now knitting until it's 19 inches long before I start the arms. I tried it on a few nights ago and it should fit fine which was a bit of a relief! Bottom up is scary lol. I'm almost certainly going to have to buy another ball of yarn for it at some point though because I'm making a longer than average size and want long sleeves too. However the yarn is acrylic so hopefully the dyelots won't be too different :-S

I do have another WIP at the moment but I can't show it to you. I'm taking part in a wrist warmers swap, my yarn arrived yesterday. It's already on the needles although it's probably going to be a while before it's finished as it's fingering weight yarn and I haven't got a lot of spare time at the moment. Swap deadline is for the end of November which I'm hoping to meet!

I'm also going to be taking part in the Anadiomena mystery KAL in November too so I expect my Owls are going to be rather neglected for a while. Still, it's fun to be busy :-)

Happy Halloween!


More WIP Wednesday posts are at Tami's Amis


  1. Oooh you will love your Owls!! I made myself one and it is the first jumper I have ever made for myself. I love it and wear it probably more than I should ;)

    1. I'm very much looking forward to finishing it, I've been lusting over this pattern for years!

  2. Happy Haloween! The Owls jumper will be gorgeous, I really want to knit that pattern.

    1. It's very easy and knits up quickly as it's chunky yarn

  3. What a cute, happy Frankenstein! Cutest one I've EVER seen!
    Have you tried bottom up before? How do you like it?

    1. I have once before when I made a Ziggy jumper but I'm not really a fan. It's joining the sleeves I don't like, feels all wrong lol


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
