The fit is perfect even if this rushed photo shows it to be a bit wrinkly. I also have to reblock my button bands as I'd made a silly mistake and had to reknit both of them after I'd sewed the buttons on!
I'm also working on Rowan's Kaffe Fassett KAL. Since I can't quite face another afghan, I've opted to do the small cushion and am being even lazier by knitting just one out of the two squares specified for each clue. I'm guessing the second square is for the back of the pillow and I prefer to use fabric instead. I do have some Kaffe striped material that will be perfect. Each square follows the same pattern and sequence of stripes; the mystery is how all the colours will work together in the end. I'm following the pattern's placement but using some 4ply from my stash. Here are my first three squares and I'm not at all sure how this will turn out colourwise. There are some fabulous photos on ravelry from knitters doing the whole afghan.
And then this Friday is the start of Stephen West's next mystery shawl KAL, Exploration Station.
I've knitted his last two KALs and really loved the process. They were creative and original and so much fun to knit. I learned a lot of new techniques too. This was the first - Rockefeller - which I still trot out frequently.
Or use this raspberry Madeline Tosh as the main, with three balls of Lousia Harding Amitola that has shades of gray, chartreuse and deep forest green in it.
