Stripe-nicity

I had forgotten how much fun self-striping yarns are to knit and am loving the stocking stitch - at the moment, I'm sure the novelty will have worn off long before I've finished the jacket.


I had some good news today. The vets called to say that Mr C's latest test results have come back and all is well, so there should be no need for any more tests or treatment for 6 months. Huzzah! Crack open the catnip!

Just catching up.... Lovely haul from your Ally Pally day, gorgeous Lake District pictures (as usual), and I just love this self striping yarn - would never have guessed it was going to be like that from the ball.
