Round and round

I've almost completed 2 pattern repeats. With the circular needle it is hard to stop!

And now for something old...

I started this, the Sake and Soba sweater from the book "Japanese Inspired Knits" almost a year ago. I didn't get very far, as you can see, because I couldn't make sense of the pattern. I contacted the publisher and it took quite a while to get a response and I moved on to other projects. It turned out there was an error in the charts.
Anyway - it's winter here now, and time to get on with it.
I'm trying to restrain myself from buying more wool for my next planned project until this is complete....or almost complete.
Now that I've picked it up again, and worked out where I was up to, I am enjoying it - the cable and patterns have me keen to finish each row to see it develop.

A case for my uke

I've been going to ukulele classes - and carrying my ukulele in it's cardboard box didn't seem very cool - so I raided my stash and came up with some quilted fabric and ... it can be cosy

But wait...there's more

5 down - 3 to go. I'm getting the feeling it's time to move on to something else....

Mitts, mitts and more mitts

Well I made 4 pairs of the above mitts but gave some away before I could photograph them altogether.
Now I'm making more out of a TouchYarns yarn - it is 60% Merino, 30% Possum and 10% Nylon. The possum should make them really cosy for the colder times of winter - which is almost here - so I'm making them as fast as I can
