Knitting and candle making

I’m very busy, visiting family, doing household chores, things like that. There’s not a lot of time left to do some knitting, but I still did some last week.
The green and white sweater didn’t turn out the way I wanted. I started over for the third time, still wishing that it will work this time. I have been looking for a pattern, but it’s either not the kind of sweater I’m looking for, or the pattern is for much thicker yarn. So I’m still trying to make it up as I go.

The thick purple yarn is great to work with. It knits very easy and it feels good. I decided to make a short and thight little cardigan. I think it will look great on jeans.
I finished the back saturday and started on one of the fronts.

Also I’m very busy making candles. A few years ago I bought a candlemaking set, but I never really used it. Now, in my newfound crafting enthousiasm, I set the goal to empty the bags of parafine. They are taking up a lot of space in my cupboard, but I didn’t want to throw it away. This works two way: finally cleaning up and making some nice gifts for the holidays. The ones that don’t look to good, I’ll burn myself. But maybe I end up ordering some more candlemaking stuff, since I’m really enjoying trying out new techniques….

I finished these saturday and this morning:


And these I just made, they are still in the molds. I like the color change and I really hope they come out right.
