At our group last week one of the ladies was looking for a set-in sleeve pattern:
Could this be what you're looking for?

Hope this helps - it's a pretty nice jumper anyway!

Good to see you!

Really good to see you all today! I've been creating a list of places on the web I've found inspiration - if you know of others that should be on here please let me know (just add a comment down below).

We all agreed that it would be good to meet a bit more often so now we'll meet twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday (any fifth Tuesdays will be up for grabs I guess!!)

A Wider Audience?

Well I don't know how but our little group has a paragraph in the Evesham Journal this week! Thank you to who ever put that in and let's hope it brings even more people to our February gathering. I've become a little obsessed with Noro yarn at the moment - the colours are amazing and means that even knitting in the round is interesting because of the constant colour changes. I think I knit faster when knitting with Noro to make the changes come round more quickly!

I'm also considering steeking at the arm holes and neck so I can continue knitting in the round. See here: for an explaination.

A Good Start!

It was really good to have four people at the very first meeting of Pershore kitters. We knitted and nattered almost solidly for two hours (interspersed with excellent tea, coffee and cake from the cafe downstairs.)

The team at No 8 were pleased to see us and one or two are getting excited about knitting themselves ; )

Works in progress included a lovely heathery chunky knit, a seagreen noro jacket, an interesting angle-patterned scarf and some free-form crochet from the expert amongst us!

I think I'll bring some socks to the next meeting which will be on the 2nd December.....
