More of the James River

We were on holiday last week (more of which in another post) so I had chance to make good progress on my current wips.

'Along the James River' is coming along nicely although I doubt now that I will finish the pre-stitching before the class.

I have finished the colonial scene on the front for the time being,  I still have to add the river but we go back and add that later

And I have got a good start on the back.

Onto Rosie's jumper, I've finished the front and cast on for the back.

The stitching looks great and so does the jumper - knitting garments is a lot of work. I used to knit all my tops when I was much, much younger so I know how much time goes into each item.
