Finished things ....

Yes two in two days !!

Kauni like cardi.
I really enjoyed knitting this, but I do need to learn how to do 'jogless joins' when doing circular knitting.
Also the very top purple was not colourfast so the top bands have a pink background instead of natural ...

I've not sewn down the steeks, just left them cut.

Basically this has turned into a 'test knit' just to prove to myself that I can do colourwork, without the garment ending up the right size for an eight year old !!

And then we have counterpoint scarf.

This has been on the needles a very long time.

Front looking uninteresting...





The backing giving some idea of what is to come...









And then the keys appear ...

Very difficult to take a picture of, and this is a good as I could get....

And now it is the first of my Christmas presents to be finished....


Thanks for the suggestions on my ear problem, unfortunately it is more of an infection type thing than sinus and damp makes it worse... I'm hoping that I will know more in a month when it has been well and truly probed...

And I'm off to stay with friends this weekend - I've been told that there will be lots of relaxing.. I'm hoping to get to here on Thursday afternoon and if it is dry on Sunday I've got permission to knit outside here. My plan is to see how many of my wips I can finish whilst watching films, and having food cooked for me. And one of the best things about these friends is that I get to sleep in my grandparent's bed, which I always sleep well in, strange fact, but it could be to do with the good company, wine and a relaxing time....

You do such amazing work Sue!
The cardi is fantastic as well as the * hidden * piano key scarf.

Have a wonderful weekend relaxing with friends.

Love that cardi! Enjoy Voirrey - next time you are in this neck of the woods pop in to Aberhafesp Community Centre and ask to see the community tapestry - Voirrey supplied the wools.

Hey, which Abakhan? Wish I could come join you knitting on Sunday, but suspect we will be chasing round over the weekend trying to sort stuff out (and visit my Mum too, though John will try and go sooner I can't take the driving so soon after the trip back from Abersoch).

Best wishes from Liverpool

Amazing projects. The cardi looks fab. You must have the patience of a saint for all that colourwork.
