It's a long, long time since I last blogged! Where have I been, one might wonder: for once, I've been knitting and knitting successfully, at that - not much Bad Knitting at all! Makes a nice change!
I finished the stripy jumper I was making for my daughter JUST as the first leg of the summer heatwave hit us. Typical! I got VERY tired of changing yarn all the time as the stripes are quite narrow. I used what was left over from another jumper as well as the owl - this meant I was mixing DK with 4ply but fortunately it isn't noticable.
I also tried out knitting the neck on DPNs with some success! I was really just experimenting as I want to try this out with other creations and it wasn't too difficult. Not keen on DPNs - too prickly!
I had such fun with the delicious colours that I used what was left and made a beret.
Once the weather has decided it really is Autumn, I'll get my daughter to wear the combo and photograph her.
