I'm on the PC tonight, not the lappy, so I have pictures. Hurrah!
This is the fruit of my labours while waiting to be discharged from Jury Service. I did all of the blue knitting while hanging around in the Court buildings, then added the white edging and flowery shell buttons afterwards. Using this famous Sirdar Indigo takes a little longer than other yarns because you have to do the whole washy shrinky thing.
I think it looks like a skate fish and DH thinks it looks like a kite, but trust me, when I am walking in the countryside in the Isle of Mull in July this year it will keep the sun off my head (I reckon it will be glorious weather, he he), my hair out of my eyes, and the pesky midges at bay. To answer your question from a couple of days ago Carol, the midges are not a problem at this time of year, certainly not where I live, but give it a few months and they'll be out in force!
I don't have any daylight pictures, or ones of me wearing it yet, but I can show you last year's model which did me proud, again on the Isle of Mull.
In other knitting I am seaming, picking up stitches, darning ends and generally panicking about the stripy child's cardigan! Hope to show you the completed garment very very soon.
