So here we are - as promised. Forest Canopy got finished at long last. The yarn was a present from the Fabulous Dee - Lucia sock yarn in the rather wonderfully named shade 'Scrumptious'. Does anyone else wonder where she gets all those names from? Does she sit there with a dictionary, or does she just have too much time on her hands?!!!! (Only jesting my dear!) I used 4mm needles and managed to do 23 repeats with 2 skeins. I was very worried at the end if I'd run out of yarn - had a mere 3 metres left.
It's a lovely size and I can't wait to wear it. The colours are just great, so very 'me' and I really think this will go with everything in my wardrobe. I love it so much, thanks Dee and Tony (who no longer wants to be called Mr P). More cake for you one day!
Close up - have I blocked it right? Should the leaves be squares? There are loads of mistakes on it, but by the time I was down to repeat number 21 and at least 5 million stitches on the needles, there was no way I was going to take anything back down!
Oh and some very exciting news, I've been nominated for a Rocking Blogger Award by Julie (Blossom and Alfie's first mum). Don't know what it means, but hey, an award! Me! Yeah man, I rock. Shall I be going on tour soon?
