Whisperering Elegance Sweater

Wow, I have finally finished the sweater. Perfect timing too, as it is getting really cold down here. It is light blue and so warm. I think that I might make another one soon. When I get hold of a camera I will take a photo and add it to the blog.

Now I have to go through my other projects to see what to start next or what to finish off....

Mags mags and mags

Where have all the crochet magazines gone and why is it that the ones that you find on the shelves are so expensive???

In my teens I used to by Crochet Monthly, but now I just cant be bothered. The magazines have less projects and just dont look interesting enough to do. I am so glad for the internet and the thousands upon thousands of free patterns that look great to make.

Sometimes I do go into the store to look at getting a magazine but most often then not, they dont have anything that interests me or they are over the top expensive. At the local newsagent, there is 1 crochet magazine, and about 20 quilters or scrapbooking magazines. Not a lot of choice out there.

Oh well back to the internet!

Whisperering Elegance Sweater Update

Well early this morning I finished sewing the pieces together and have already started on the front and neck edgings...I hope to have this finished sometime today, and then start on the next bit of the pattern. I have to say that I am really enjoying making this, and am using my mother to model it for me whenever I do something to see how it sits on her. She is eyeing it, but I have told her that this one is mine and I will make her another one when I finish.

things to make still
I have to still make some christmas presents and some mittens for my son, as winter is really cold down here...it is already hitting minus 1 or more here. Too early for winter!

ARHHHH, I have been working on the sleeves and just noticed that I had made a mistake...I have frogged out 5 rows and I was near finishing it, oh well, at least I noticed it on the first one...would have hated to make the second and then realise that I made a big error in the first and redo it again. I am hoping to get the sleeves finished as soon as possible, but with colds (myself and my son) crocheting is becoming a hard task to do.
