Bliss & Hanne

Finished at last, here's Bliss (with a one-armed, not-great photo):
And this one shows the colour of the yarn a bit better:

Then Hanne, which is really hard to photograph and see it properly, but it gives you an idea. This is the mitered corner, fastened with a stitch holder, of all things:

And a vague idea of the front as a whole:

On the whole I'm pretty pleased with both, and they've been really useful for the Spring weather, a little warmth around your middle without being overwhelming.

Knitting In Progress

So, I thought it was time for a little update on what I'm knitting at the moment.  Here's Bliss:

After a slight false start and a little chart reading confusion, this has been going along quite speedily and I'm pleased with how its turning out.  The yarn is Jamieson's Heather Aran in Fern although it's a brighter, richer green than the photo.

Then we have Hanne:

This is in Freedom Spirit in Bliss (confusingly enough!) and a grey Artesano Alpaca. I'm not quite sure how this is going to turn out, but I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt for now.  I should have taken a better photo of the mitered corners but you can see one in the top left of the picture.  Nice and simple knitting, nothing too taxing...
