Seeking solace in knitting

My thanks to all who commented on yesterday's post. It was a hard one to write and I was touched that so many readers took the time to reach out here, on Facebook, or via private messages. I don't really feel like writing very much but routine is good, so as it's Wednesday I'll show you what's on my needles... 
Seeking solace in knitting - Crafts from the Cwtch
Carmen of and her seamless pullover
When I posted a link to the "Seamless Pullover" class with Norah Gaughan on Creativebug, Carmen (aka Crafty Queens) started knitting it. She was working on hers when we met up in Holland a few weeks ago and as soon as I saw it I knew I'd have to cast on.

I'll tell you about the (very cheap and splitty) yarn I'm using, and more details about the class and the design when it's finished, but it's a nice simple pattern. More importantly it's keeping me busy without having to concentrate too much - true "comfort knitting". Provided it knits up ok, this will be counted towards my Handmade Wardrobe Project, for which I've also made another knitted garment in the last few days (this is the most knitting I've done in months!), but more on that another time.


  1. Everything I read yesterday was very sad, but as I didn't know the lady was very hard to express my empathy without sounding false. But having a little knowledge of mental health issues it truly is sad for her nearest and dearest and contacts and want to just express myself through you. Thank you. X

  2. Well done xxxx lots of love xxxx

  3. I am so sorry on the loss of Wink. I followed her blog. Loved her tutorials and beautiful patterns. I found your blog through Wink. She must have been in a lot of pain and yet she still was able to be so creative. So very sorry.

  4. I really like the stitch definition you're getting w/this yarn that looks cotton like.
