A bit of recycling going on. From this (my bra straps kept showing) and this (not comfortable showing so much belly) to this:

doesn't the smallest of some of those balls make you uncomfortable. I'm thinking of all the ends I'm going to have to deal with. I'm just planning on a simple jumper with set in sleeves. The length of sleeves is going to depend on how much yarn I have.

Bang goes one of my goals for 2006 which was to knit less and free up time for some other activities. Here's my adapted Beatriz which was one month in the making:

I used 800g of Yarn Warehouse aran in the Denim colourway. I highly recommend this yarn, it's excellent value for the price. The pattern was easy to adapt - I just continued the raglan shaping up to the neck. The only negative point is with the sleeves - it's too wide at the top I could have done with missing out the last 2 increases.

I've been wanting to post about these for a couple of days now but at this time of year I have to wait until the weekend until I can get to take photos in daylight. Of course, today has turned out to be a grotty, overcast day so I still need the flash.

Koigu socks from JStrizzy:

They are a perfect fit for my skinny ankles and this type of heel also fits much better than a heel flap. Can't you tell I'm very pleased with them.
