Squeaking into February

It's been a curious start to the year, with Other Half's flu/pneumonia closely followed by a viral bronchitis for me. Neither of us feels great yet - but meanwhile knitting continues. I am now well ensconced in Module 2 of my City & Guilds Hand Knitting Level 3 course, enjoying playing with colour. This month's picture shows a sample knitted in all the colours of the colour wheel, using different yarns and textures. It's huge fun seeing what can be achieved, knitting samples in complementaries, secondaries and primaries, collecting inspirational colour images, and considering how these might build up into design ideas for knitting. More next time - I just wanted to make sure that I got a posting up in February!
