Juno

I did indeed finish Juno on time to wear it in Scotland, unfortunately there are no photos, so this will have to do.




I do love it and it is very warm and cosy. Just what I need as its freezing here, surely it must be nearly springtime?

My most recent handspun is this
Amys december fibre, Party dress, its very loud and will need to be socks.




The yarn that was bought in Scotland was some yummy Jamie Possum handpaint in Bush Harvest colour, this will be some fingerless mittens for ME.



I also bought some sock yarn which I thought my brother might like, he doesn't its not purple enough apparently and he needs to have something a little louder but not the Party Dress, its too loud!



Other knitting includes this handspun sock, which is a little overspun, so a bit hard, it is the Goblins Eyes from the fibre club.




I am off to the, not so local lys, today with a new girl in town, I have to find yarn for another boobholder, this one for my cousin, she loved it but not red. I wore mine and the red shoes to the craft fair and caused a little bit of a stir, some people just don't know how to talk about someone behind their back without them noticing......



Sorry Amelia but my Mum cut some of my shoes off, so its just nearly a photo of the shoes and cardi together

Juno looks great , and I love the boboholder and shoes (can JUST about see the straps in that photo!)
I'd knit myself a boobholder , but I'd need to knit the boobs first! lol

people were talking about you behind your back? in an envious manner, i hope! you look stunning.

surely they were saying good things? The boobholder looks gorgeous on you, I have made that pattern twice now, it's a fun knit! Oh and Juno is gorgeous, what yarn did you use and how much? I have some Rowan Aran Tweed that might do for it...

Love both Juno and the boobholder. Stunning!

I can vouch for the fact that Juno looks even better in person :0) Love the lipstick red boobholder and I'm quite sure the shoe comments were envious. I certainly covet them !

Juno turned out great - its a lovely pattern that the photo in the book (I think anyway) doesn't do it justice!

I love the Juno sweater. It looks very cosy and warm! Still cold here, too. Still snow....
Surely the craft fair people were checking you out trying to figure out how they could make one too.

Ooh, loving the Juno .... and the red boobholder!

.... obviously the people at the craft fair were debating whether that old saying about wearing red shoes is true ....

;)

Juno is beautiful!!

and maybe they were just envious that they didn't have it in them to wear such a great boobholder and pretty shoes??
