Quiet but busy

I may not have posted recently, but at least my time has been productive. I have another knitting finish.
This has been on the go but put to one side for a long time. I thought I best finish it while it would fit N, and it does. I'm really pleased with this one.

Today I also branched into dyeing. I was a bit nervous about this as I have never dyed anything before and it wasn't the cheapest thing to start with.
It worked perfectly though, and here it is drying on the line.
I just love the colour, I threw in a couple of N's vests that I had sent a bit pink in the wash, and they came out great too.

I have even had time to work on a little something for myself, but pictures of that will have to wait. Plus there has been lots of sunshine so lots of garden time, N now has his own garden tools so we can do the weeding together. So all in all I am really feeling productive.

That's great hun. Love the jumper. You have really got into the knitting thing haven't you? Gardening? What's that? I hate it. x

I haven't always been a huge gardening fan, but I love being in the fresh air and being able to grow my own food. I've really got into it since moving here and having a garden of my own.

I feel I'm really getting somewhere with the knitting too.

The Indio looks really good! I haven't dyed one of those but did dye a Vat Maruyama.

I've never owned a Vatanai, just natis, didys and a hopp. I've heard good things about them though.
