Got my knitting groove back in time for the Autumn/Winter and seem to be getting some things actually finished.
This is my Noro Silk Garden Entrelac Scarf. I love the colour combinations in this yarn and I really enjoyed the entrelac. Much easier than I thought. It's out of my system now, as it actually got a bit boring as I hit the fourth ball.
While I was getting J to photograph the scarf I thought I'd ask him to do me a picture I can use as an avatar on ravelry. This is a closer shot of the new autumn haircut and one of my new pairs of specs.
This is my swatch for my International Scarf Exchange knit - My So Called Scarf. I'm going to knit my scarf wider than the pattern as I think it looks a little thin. I think I'm going to go for 36 or 38 stitches instead of 30. I've got 4 skeins of Maya so I should have plenty of yarn.
This is my Harvest Sock Swap sock. Twinkletoes Sock Yarn. It's coming on well.
Finally, a gratuitous picture of my pheasant. Should really say, J's pheasant. He feeds her twice a day and she comes right up to him when he appears in the garden. It's still a really odd site in an urban garden. "Oh, that - that's just our pheasant..."
J update: we went to see J's cardiologist today as he's been having some aching in his chest and we were anxious about it and worried that he, perhaps, had angina. Everything's fine and the pains are likely to be muscle tension.
