Progress and photos

Finally, I remembered to take some photos in the hours of daylight today. Here it is, the front piece of Orangina, completed (I added about 1.5" to the length as it seemed a bit short for my liking) and 5" of the back piece. I should have had a bit more of the back done but I kept messing my count and had to frog and re-knit the first 5-10 rows three times! You would have thought it'd be easier having done it once already!Doh!

A bit more progress has been made since the photo was taken. FYI, I'm knitting this in Rowan Linen Drape shade 844 and I'm knitting it in the smallest size. I thought it was going to be big, but I'm glad I checked out the postings and comments on this blog. I think it should fit just fine. Fingers crossed.

Looks lovely! I decided on somewhat cowl, but I'm knitting this soon (as in during the summer, probably!)... It looks great with so many types of yarn... Great colour!
