When I first dyed the yarn the idea was to hold it together with a black yarn to get a thicker yarn. So I started on 5mm needles, adding black sock yarn. I soon saw it was going to be huge. So on Friday evening I ripped, and started over. With the handdyed yarn only, and on 4mm needles. Really scared I wouldn't make it with the yardage. I hardly knit on it on Saturday, so most of the knitting was done today. I cast off with my regular method, but didn't like it at all. So, ripped back and did a sewn bind of. Perfect! Only had about a meter to spare!
I found a vintage button, sewed it on and went out into the sunshine to take some pictures. I love it! I love the colour, I love how the fabric turned out on 4mm needles, I love the fit! I'm also planning a few more of these ! :D I'm so sure I'll use it a lot. And well, I might knit a few as gifts. They are so easy and fun!
And unfortunately, that's all I have to show. It's going to be a rather dissapointing month. I didn't make my goals for the Stash Knit down 2008 and there's no time left to get there. But hey, I just keep knitting!
PS. : My hair was cut and coloured last Thursday and it looks so neat with the band!
