Don't ask me why I have started knitting this type of thing, I never have before, but I'm finding it very relaxing.

This was a free Ravelry download, and as I'm not using the correct yarn, I will have to make some adjustments.  I'm using up the last of the silk mix, which is approx DK weight, and is a real pleasure to knit with.  I started off with a cotton lycra mix, but I thought the silk looked nicer.

It looks lovely Jessie.

My trouble with knitting something bigger than socks or gloves is that I get half way through, think yes, I've cracked that pattern and then loose interest and it never gets finished :fish:

I think that's why I've been doing these small projects Brenda.  They knit up very quickly, even though I'm using smaller gauge needles and yarn.

Just in-between projects until I can face trying on 'The' sweater......  ;)
