    Decided to magic loop the Owls sleeves. Dogs were quiet for 5 mins!

    Picked up my Owls jumper. Now understand where I am in pattern. Need size 7mm dpns though. To the shops. Tally ho.

    @knit_british a day later I'm outdoors casting on second sock whilst my herd of dogs (2) play sticky. #widn

    Finally finished something. Hurrah. And it just fits. Don't think it's really supposed to go with my running jacket but hey ho. Silk Hanky cowl done.

    My friendship star quilt finally got the binding machined on. Just to hand sew it. And at this moment I realise I've sewn it on the wrong side. Poops.

    The silk hankie cowl in progress.
