I wanted to share with you what I am currently working on. To be honest I have about 50 million projects on the go (bit of an exaggeration ha :)), but these three are the ones I am working on at the moment.
I am obsessed with crochet at the moment, in the morning I am on pinterest looking for inspiration and ideas, not to mention the odd pattern, my crochet board has so many pins, I think I have a serious love for crochet. I'm fairly new to crochet so this is probably why I'm obsessed with it.
Anywho, I have a lot of odd balls of DK left over from the coral reef I did for my uni exhibition and I needed to use them up. Mum was telling me about the wool eater stitch a while ago, it eats through your stash, I was like yea! I need to do this, that would be perfect, so off I went onto pinterest and I found a pattern. Each colour is only two rows, and it looks awesome! I've already finished off two balls.

A while ago I wanted to knit something in DK on the larger scale, like a jumper for me. So I decided I would knit myself for Christmas the Stylecraft Twilight Jumper 8672. I'm also knitting it in the same yarn as in the pattern picture ( I don't normally do this ha), and that is Stylecraft Amethyst 1281, for me I need 4 balls.
I really enjoy using Stylecraft yarns. This particular one, is really nice, it is a black DK with a purple metallic thread going through, it is really nice to knit with. I am currently still on the back piece, but as of yesterday I am up to shaping the arm holes. Can't wait to get the back piece done, I want to start the front piece, it has a diamond like, lacey type pattern going on, which looks fun to do.
It is a fairly easy pattern to follow at the moment, it is just st-st. I am knitting this on my interchangeable Hiya Hiya circular needles, I'm knitting it flat though, and not in the round. I have found it so much easier to use circular needs to knit flat with because there is long needle in the way, plus it makes it easier to carry about ( I'll tend to knit when I'm travelling)

My grandparents bought me a 400g ball of Wendy Aran a couple of years ago, I have been saving it for something I really wanted to knit it with.
I fell in love with the Renwick Cushion pattern from Knit Now Issue 16. I am knitting it in Wendy Aran in Shade 463, 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool. It is lovely to knit with. The pattern is so easy to follow, with a simple cable. It is enough to hold my attention as it has been growing quickly and I am loving the effect of the cable.
