It looks pretty illuminated to me!
Sorry folks, but that is indeed more glorious sunshine in my neck of the woods. Just promise you won't zoom in, the bags under my eyes are more like suitcases at the moment.
It's made in Woolcraft Aran in cream with flecks of orange, lime and brown in it. It's 75% acrylic /25% new wool and took just under 600g, at £3.99 for a 400g ball it's been a bargain knit and I still have enough left to make a baby aran.
I'm not entirely enamoured with it, after the very fitted style of D.M.B.L.B? this feels a little potato sacky. If I made it again (doubtful) I'd add some shaping into the sides. I need to sew down the back of the shawl collar so it sits in the right place, it will drive me nuts if I don't. I also want to change the beltloops as I don't like them as given in the pattern. If I don't love it by the end of the week there's a queue of people waiting to take it off me. I think I'll grow to love it, I'm just suffering from being sick of looking at it.
The question is - what next?
