Movember sewing

Somehow it is already the end of October, which means tomorrow is November. Or Movember as it is becoming known in certain circles. Movember is when guys look really silly by attempting to grow moustaches to raise awareness of men’s cancers. A colleague at work told me she had got some moustache earrings to wear for the whole of November, so I wondered what I could do and on the tube today I embroidered this little badge. A scrap of muslin and just one needle of black embroidery thread and now I can pretend to be an East London hipster! And what is that in the background? Oh, it is my new cowl/roll-neck jumper/top using some of the fabric I got on Saturday. I used about half of the black ribbed knit, so I think this jumper cost £1.50. Seriously! I wore it yesterday with just a vest underneath and got a little too hot at times and was unable to take it off, so I think this is definitely a jumper and not a top. The neckline was a little low and wide for a roll neck so it is more of an over-sized cowl, but what ever it is it is perfect for keeping cosy in this chilly autumn weather.With just two months to go until the end of my crafty resolution, tomorrow I will do a count of my (meagre) progress and try to get up to speed before the weekend is over. Hopefully I’ll have some good crochet news to share tomorrow!
