My Poinsettia. First FO of 2009. In Knittery Cashmere-Merino “Cherries” on 3,5mm circs. Roughly 4 hours to knit – and that was with 3 frogged starts because I kept twisting the join.


I really do like this pattern, and I’ll do one for me. The collar is a thing of genius. I’ll make it the small size for me, and may add an extra repeat to really make the neck snug. Definitely something that will go well in a Canberra winter…

Time for home and a hot water bottle (yes, in this heat). I’ve run out of free 4mm needles so I need to start finishing things to get them all back… Oh and there’s cricket on tonight. Tennis _and_ cycling next week. Happiness!
