I finished making this up tonight. I'm pleased with how its turned out, and I really like the rowan buttons which I chose.
Pattern: Cinnabar
Yarn: Tess Dawson dk Merino
Colour: Chocolate
Needle: 4mm brittany Birch
Size: 33.5"

I haven't blocked it yet, but its machine washable yarn, so I'll just throw it in the machine over the next few days!
I can hardly believe where the last week has gone. I had a week of annual leave and it went by so fast, I felt like I got nothing done:-( I was a bit unwell both in the run up, and after the GNR, I think I've had some kind of virus, and have felt a bit yucky!!!!! I've been back to work today, and definately not feeling the benefit of a week off at the moment! Only 9 weeks to go to the next weeks holiday:-)

I've totalled up my fundraising efforts, and have managed to raise just over £400, so I'm really pleased with that. Big thankyou to everybody who supported me with this!

For the pay it forward post from a couple of weeks ago, there were a few comments, so I've tried to sort who's already been picked for pay it forward elsewhere, I may have it wrong though so I do apologise...........??!! SO.... Paula, Aknita, and Ladybird Linz will be my pay it forward recipients. I think I have all the addressess already, so you'll be surprised at any time ladies:-)

I've finished my harry potter socks for the Harry potter sock swap, but I can't post them here as my pal knows my blog............ Pictures once she will have received the parcel though, so sometime later this month!

Great job on this lovely jumper. That issue of Interweave Knits made me finally give in and order a subscription.

Big congratulations on doing the GNR and the fundraising.
