Not pink for a change

Now for those of you who know me, know that I don't do green, I am a very pink person but recently I have knitted 2 green cardis
One of which was the very lovely Tempest, which is a great pattern, if it was knitted in one piece and didn't have you pick up the hem and sew it up, then it would be fabulous, I hate sewing up and this poor cardi did lie around in pieces in a bag for an awful long time. I am planning Tempest no2 though ;)

The second of the two was a shrug for the fairy princess and she needed something to match a green sundress for a wedding, she was very pleased with it as it had beads on the cast off edge. It was based on the one skein wonder but with elbow length sleeves, very cute :)

I am not knitting for a week or so as I have damaged a tendon in my right wrist and have to rest it for a week, so do you know how boring it is to watch television with no knitting?
