Knitting Update

If you've been reading my achievements posts you will have seen that I have started kniting a waistcoat for myself and I have completed the back.

It's being knit in Fyberspates Scrumptious DK in Deep Purple a silk/wool blend that really lives up to it's name. I picked it up at K1 Yarns in Edinburgh back in April when Rosie and I accompanied DH on a work trip. I met up with Paula while we were there and we did some serious wool stashing LOL. I was fondling a skien of the Scrumptious and commenting that I was very tempted by it but what to knit with it, when the owner kindly pointed me at the Noro Designer Mini Knits book by Jenny Watson for some ideas. So I decided to go for Design 26, either a waistcoat or short sleeved cardigan depending on your point of view.
