The Teaching Band Sampler

here's last weeks progress on this one. I'm within touching distance of a finish, just a small amount of stitching left then a load of beads to attach (there is a bead in the centre of each of the flowers in the border). Hopefully this week will see it done.

After that evil enabler Paula showed off her sock wool stash this weekend it suddenly struck me that I hadn't bought any sock wool since the summer. As I was in York yesterday a quick trip to Sheepish and that was remedied with a hank of Artisan Alpaca Hummingbird coming home with me as well as the new Rowan Magazine :)

It's good to see that you're so close. One final push ought to do it and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished article.

The sock wool is lovely, I'll be interested in how it knits up.
