Sunday Shetland 3

With the arrival of frost and snow last week, there was precious little knitting being done. Last weekend we spent most daylight hours outside, skating instead. Add to that the Baby Knitting Bug striking doubly hard, which has up to now resulted in nearly another mouse being knit up, a fish blanket pattern being printed out and overalls being planned.
But progress has been made:
I've finished the decreased and done the first increased past the waist already! It is so much fun to knit that it goes like the wind...
The inside is also very neat and tidy. I'm thinking about what the best way would be to weave in the ends. I'll probably do it bit by bit, to avoid having a ton to do when I've finished knitting.
In the meantime, this has been started...
I'm kntting this homespun (Dutch Wool Diva) together with some light-blue acrylic HWS Markoma Yasmina, to make it stronger and a bit chunkier. Liking the effect so far! An arm, two ears and a tail to go and then this little fellow is done...

You flatter me! Maar het is gewoon té leuk. Gisteren trouwens heel ordinair sokken zitten stoppen... Voor de afwisseling...

Wat wordt dat breiwerk prachtig! Petje af voor je keuze van de verschillende kleuren.
