Bamboozled (me) lol

Pattern found here

This is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be. It's not that hard really, it's just the amount of concentration that is needed to try and work through each line. It really does hurt my head.
I am not really surprised that it has turned out a bit silly looking because of the variation in colours in the yarn, but I guess it still looks okay. I have spent so long fiddling with it and holding it that it has become partly felted LOL.
Luckily this one isn't going to anyone else.

It also badly needs blocking. I can't believe how many hours I have spent on this for what result I have. *embarrassed*
Woe is me... but I will keep soldiering on.

And what's more... the author lists this as a "quick knit". *snort*

Note to self, next time follow chart, not line by line. Also don't pull slipped stitches too tight in the beginning unless you want something that resembles a knitted poo.

Go hard,
.......... or go home:P

New dyed wool

Here are some photos of the yarn that I dyed the other day. I think I am getting a bit better.
Thanks to Bec for her pointers, and fabulous advice!
This one is probably my favourite, but the other one was a bit of a disaster... ;)
Imagine black dye all over the kitchen. whoops!

Cable Bag

I should start updating here again now that I actually have time to update! (and more importantly time to create lol)

I'm working on the Drops Bag with Cable Pattern in Eskimo and so far I'm enjoying it. It's the first project that I've made with cables, and they really are much easier than I was expecting. I'm not sure what I was expecting really. :P

I am using up some wool that I had laying around that I didn't like the look of up until now, but it works well for a bag. I'm pretty sure it's 100% wool.

I'm using crappy needles because my addis aren't long enough, can't wait until I get KPs!!
