Hooray! I have YARN!

Lovely, lovely yarn. This is Rowan Big Wool in Bohemian, for the tank top I posted about the other day.

The colour is a bit more orangy than I thought, and has that 2-tone effect that didn't come across in any of the photos online... but I'm sure it will be fine. I need more colour in my wardrobe.


Also, I knit another christmas scarf in one evening. I used one skein of Sirdar Vegas and 15mm needles to make a lacy scarf for Ben's girlfriend. Ben is Matt's brother and he has been in Oz and New Zealand for 2 years, and is back for christmas, bringing his girlfriend! So I've never met her but have made scarves for other people so thought I should. I think this will work, as I didn't want anything bulky as a) she has to take it back to New Zealand with her and b) its summer down there! This is definitely a fashion scarf rather than a keeping warm scarf. Please excuse the nasty picture of me...

Oh that's pretty wool. My mum mentioned that she has some Big to give me. I'll have to poke her will I'm down here.
