My Creative Space - Beginning Number 2 Sofa Sweater

I've just begun to make another sofa cover like the one here. This time it's for a much bigger sofa and so will take a lot longer to upcycle. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the lovely big amount of wool I found here for this one. So I've had to order ten massive balls of wool. I hope it will be enough!

Whoops...just noticed I haven't painted inside the shelf!!

ps. You can see what other people are creating here


  1. Best of luck with your knitting project ... I think it's going to be amazing! :)
    PS. Love the shot of your adorable shoes.

  2. You are an amazing knitter!!! Love the sofa cover and can't believe you are attempting another one - looks like so much work. At the moment I am attempting my very first pair of knitted socks - feeling very proud of myself - but I can see I have a long way to go before I can consider myself a serious knitter. :)

  3. Thanks Tracey. I think it's going to be a long term project that I can just pick up and put down when I have time.

    My shoes are cute aren't they and so comfortable....I must have had them for at least five years, maybe ten they have turquoise coloured little chunky wedge soles!!

  4. Thank you Rel...I love knitting and find it so much easier to do than crocheting...but I must have a go at that again soon. I'm just doing the cover slowly though so that it's fun and doesn't become a chore.

    I wanted to knit socks last winter but couldn't find a pattern that I liked and then it was too late for winter. Good luck with yours...I hope you post an image when they're finished. I'd love to see them.
