8 months early or 4 months late?

Well, these are the shepherds as part of the nativity I'm knitting, they are made using left over sock yarn, think these are mostly the blue stripy colourway in sirdar town and country.
Need to knit some more bright socks now so I have more leftovers to make the kings, got some opal neon lined up for my next socks.

My first fairisle attempt.

Well, I am finally up (or should that be down) to the colourwork on the hipknits silk cardi. Here is progress so far

and here is a close up of the fairisle.

I am really enjoying knitting with the silk now, think I could get used to luxury yarns,

slowly knitting

Still here and progressing slowly. Central park hoodie needs one sleeve and the button band, and the hipknits cardi is halfway down the raglan shaping. Hope to have the CPH finished by next Saturday but we shall see, not looking forward to all the button band ribbing.

I also bought my first yarn for 2 1/2 months, some black crochet cotton, now I am busy making a shrug for my duaghter.
