I found the time to finish off some personal knitting that I started back in March. March! I can’t complain, I’ve been doing fun stuff like making things for sale, but it is nice to take something off the needles that is just for me. While I love colour I usually stick with shades of green and brown, with the odd bit of burnt orange if I’m feeling adventurous, but I’m coming around to Red in a big way. This deep berry red is particularly nice! (Of course I’ve always been a bit obsessed with red polkadotty things too…)
This tunic is a rather lovely berry red with orange of brown stripes. I’ve been wearing it pretty much non-stop sine I finished it – I’ve not even had a chance to block it yet. But I thought I’d better get some photos quickly while the sun is still shining and the cat hasn’t snagged the tunic (too much).
My hat isn’t new, but it is possibly my most favourite thing I’ve ever made. I live in it over winter. It’s the Robin Hood designed by Grace Akhrem, and it is marvellous!
