Since my last post, I have been taking my Daelyn jumper as my train knitting each day. It's not really all that portable anymore, but It is so close to being finished and I can't wait to get it off the needles and be able to wear it, especially with the weather we've been having in Melbourne - brr! 5 degrees Celsius this morning as I walked from the train station to work.
I've been reading accounts from Northern Hemisphere bloggers about the current heatwave they are experiencing, as I wrap another blanket around me and tuck my toes in to stay warm and count down the sleeps to my holiday.
But before I go, I would love to have this jumper finished. Half a sleeve and the neckband to go, then I can block it and leave it to dry while I'm away. It's totally a plan.
I'm still loving this colour, even if it is a right PITA to photograph accurately. Not even natural light and a mid-grey background helped today. My foot was there to try and get a different light-meter reading, to see if that would help but no such luck.
Here's hoping I can get a better shot of the finished piece. I may have to employ a professional, I think...
Aside from Daelyn, I've not got much else in the way of knitting that I can share at the moment. If you follow me on Instagram (@kgirlknits) you may have seen a recent sneak peak of a project I've been working on though. I'm hoping that shortly after I get back from Bali I will be able to reveal a little more of this goodness. It's all so very exciting and I can't wait to share!
So, until then - hope you all stay warm in the Southern Hemisphere and for those in the North - I hope the heat breaks soon.
(I'll try not to flood Instagram with sunny Bali photos but I make no real promises)
