Wollmeise - first project

Well I have finished my first project for the year.

I turned this

into this

And I love it.

Used around 70g of fingering weight wool, and had a few gauge issues as you can see in the colour repeat. I thought about frogging it, but decided it would be a constant reminder than gauge is important!

Plus it doesn't affect the size at all, just the colour pooling.

Onto the next project.......

I was sooo scared. I dont often knit with wool this expensive! Sure - I stash it, but not actually make anything with it. I think the challenge of making it look good went a long way. Alot of sock club members were a little disappointed with this colourway, which makes it all the more exciting that I have received so much good feedback now.

I can't wait til Claudia sees it, I think she will be very happy with the result too :)
