Oh goodness, two new projects to begin the new year. There's nothing quite like getting stuck into something brand new and this year I have a huge list of projects that I want to tick off my list, so I thought why not get started. I cast this on my needles once January hit and have been doing a bit every day.
A bit on the sofa while I have my breakfast, a bit on the hammock in the sunshine, a bit on the outdoor chairs while I waited for our wood fired oven to heat up and a bit with my feet up while we watched a movie. I think if I do a bit here and a bit there, it should be finished in no time flat.
I'm using the snake pattern out of my favourite knitted toy book by Zoe Mellor. Long term readers might remember that I made the turtle out of this book at the beginning of last year.
There are quite a few stripes to be knitted up - 24 including the head. I'm trying to alternate between this and my Weekend in Stockholm blanket and so far it's a nice balance. I'll share more photos as I go.
