I am still plodding on with Christmas knits but I nearly threw in the towel making these three for some of the menfolk in my family.
Yes they are all different sizes and they are cowls which is what they asked for but in black !! Don't get me wrong I love black but its not easy to knit with at night , thank goodness for a daylight lamp otherwise I would never have done them. You can't even see the pattern on them in this picture either but they will be snuggly warm as they are done in pure cashmere. That and a return to dull grey days plus new dyes to try out and I had to have deep bright colours to see around me.
What do you think ? Bright enough ? I think they are brighter in real life too and some might end up in the shop if I can part with them .
These two are for a prize raffle that Shirley is raising money for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. Her target is £1000 after the sad loss of her Mum; go and read her blog and enter her raffle and help support a great cause as well :)
Then I had a purple itch that needed more scratching !! but I had this blue to try called 'Electric Blue' so that was added .I think it is electric too :))
The trouble with not posting regularly is that I forget what I have been doing ...heck I forget what I did yesterday !! BUT I did remember this little beauty thatUrsula made for me in a swap we had .
Its the most useful knitting bag I have and goes with me each time we go out any where and its bright too. Thanks Ursula I love it :)
