She's on the PC!

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.

Ooh, it's lovely! I especially like the delicate white edging, it sets off the blue so well. Gorgeous!

Like the headscarf Kathleen - being on jury service wasn't a total waste of time then ?! We're going to Mull in July too and yes, of course it will be sunny. Isn't it always sunny on Mull ?

Kathleen, where about in Mull would you recommend to stay? We'll be there the last week in July - if we can get a good place to saty

Now theres a handy thing a midge scarf...like you said, he'll be laughing the otherside of his face when you are free of the pesky things....what is the point of them after all? They must have a purpose in life other than bothering the whatsits off all mankind!

Thanks for the comments about my scarf! India, I have emailed you about accommodation in Mull, although I don't think I've come up with anything particularly helpful. x K

Lovely scarf - the white edging really sets it off. Thanks for the info re the midges - I shall remember to knit one for myself if I am ever fortunate enough to visit Scotland during the summer.
