Red, Gold and Greeeeeeeennnnnnnn.....

I've been incredibly lax on the updating recently, what with a gazillion things on the go and my lovely, lovely week in Cornwall, but here is a section from the colour rough for Scholastic. I'm waiting on a verdict........



The main image of the scroll has a dark green background at the moment, which I think is far too dark, but we shall see what The Others think.

In other news, I seem to have mastered circular knitting on double-pointed needles. It took me three goes last night to finally realise how to actually join it together to make a tube, but I think I have the hang of it. I've even changed colours! Stripy socks here I come!



Plus, here is our first produce from the allotment! A few gorgeous, fat ruby strawberries, a huge bag of spinach, and a stumpy little carrot that I couldn't resist pulling up to see what it looked like.



All taste splendacular.

Glad you're back Emm@! Wondered what had happened to you!What is the commission you are doing for Scholastic? Like the stumpy carrot!Those strawberries look delicious. Impressive knitting too! I started making a scarf 2 years ago and it's still not finished :-)
