Endings and beginnings

Ha! That was a corny title. But anyway...
Above is the completed Spotty Cardy - it's a pretty tight fit around the arms - next time I would make a larger size. It just means I won't be able to wear too much underneath it - however it is so warm I probably won't need to.
And I finally tackled some dyeing - not perfect but a good start.

With Unwind only 2 weeks away I am working furiously on my 2 designs. Funny - it's way easier to knit them than it is to write up the pattern. Still - a good challenge and all will be revealed soon.

Not much to show

Well - there's Spotty Cardy being blocked. I guess that's progress although it seems slow.
I've also been working on a 'Secret Squirrel' project so can't show that just yet.
I haven't started dyeing for the Rainbow Blanket - I guess I'm a bit scared and also worried that I may not get the colours I want. Still there's only one way to work that out!
Next on the list is a design (and make) for Unwind. It looks good in my head but the reality is always something else
