Getting ready for summer:

I managed to use up some of the ebay stash. The yarn is Lane Monterosa Delfino. I didn't have enough to make a tank (I know because I tried last year) so this is a modified version of Bliss from the latest rowan. I might put some ties on it I think I've got enough yarn left. I did have a button on it earlier and a button loop but it did not look right so that went.

Jumping on the bandwagon about 6 months after everyone else:

I'm knitting the "My So Called Scarf". I'm wishing now that I'd cast on another 10 stitches but it'll have to do 'cos I'm not ripping it out.
This year i'm planning to knit of my stash. My stash is full of odds and sods from ebayso look out for lots of little projects over the next 6 months. Got to get rid of it so I can go out acquire a grown-up stash.

Let me introduce you to Frances. Frances was formerly known as Balmoral but never felt happy with the way she looked. As a result of extensive surgery she's now much happier:

She's a bit on the large side as I was in between sizes so I decided to err on the larger size. I know from experience that this yarn seems to shrink with every machine wash so hopefully it'll fit me after a couple of washes.
