WIP Wednesday #8

School started again on Monday so I dont think I've touched my knitting needles since the weekend.

But all my projects are going really well but I've just realised I dont have any photos and as it's dark now I cant guarantee they'll come out very well.
Here goes:

This is the first sleeve for the baby cardigan.

But it was the second Sew Do It on Saturday and if you scroll down a bit you'll see my excitement about the event.

I went along with my lovely material and brought it home half finished. I forgot to take photos until now so here they are:

You might be able to see that the ends of the thread are all still loose and I havent finished the seam where i turned it inside out. But you get the idea.....

I sewed the seams to separate the sections in different stitches. My new sewing machine has 49 different stitches programmed into it. You just type in the number and off you go.....

Here it is open......

And here it is full of my lovely needles. Dont they look all snug?

All tucked in......

 And all wrapped up. It needs a tie.

I LOVE it. And there is loads of space left for all the needles I'm using at the moment too.

So that's this weeks WIP. It needs all the loose ends tied off but they will take me ages so it wont be a FO this week.

I need a holiday to finish all my projects. Oh, and somehow 13 balls of Cherry red Sirdar big softie and a pattern for a knee length cardigan arrived today. Cant possibly imagine how I managed to order them but now I've got them I'd better make the cardigan :)

Dont forget to check out the other WIPs at Tamis Amis.

Have a good week.


  1. Your needle roll looks FABULOUS! I love all the different stitches. Hope your first week back at school is treating you well, and that you find time to pick up the needles again soon!

  2. Thanks Honey. I've been seconded out to another school every Wednesday so wasnt there for kids first day back today when they found out i'd got married. Will be interesting tomorrow.

  3. Your needle roll turned out great! Such a cool idea to display all those different stitches. And the fabric is adorable.

  4. Too funny. I went out of town and somehow came home with 7 skeins of yarn. When did they jump in the car?

  5. I love your needle roll! It is awesome, such great fabric! I'm also a new follower so just wanted to say Hello!

  6. I love that cupcake material, its very cute and you have done very well. I wish I had something practical for storing my crafty things :)

  7. Thanks Everyone.

    Hi Sam. Have returned the follow :)

  8. How lovely! I have a link party at my blog right now. I would love it if you linked up one of your projects. Have a nice day!
