As promised, photographic proof of progress. I think I need to work on my technique a bit, the colours are a little washed out. Still, the hand-dyed cardigan has sleeves.

It's time to get this blog working again. The main thing preventing me blogging has been lack of digital camera. You can do a bit with a webcam and a phone, but it's not the same. Today I took delivery of a shiny Canon Ixus and soon, promise, there will be photos and posts once more in this somewhat dusty corner of the knitblogosphere.

Done!Pattern: Vegan Fox
Needles: 10mm circs, 6.5mm straights, 5.5mm dpns
Yarns: Duttons Yarn Ltd Fancy that (fringe), Patons Studio Mohair DK (soft plain bits), Stylecraft Eskimo (eyelash).
Notes: Simple, but effective. I think there's a line missing in the pattern. I added a row of knits between rows 2 and 3 of the body section. (Otherwise you would switch which side of the stocking stitch is the right side). I was surprised by how fast it knit up, but that is what happens when you use 10mm needles. Goggly eyes are stuck on with glue.
