Today is some knitting practice

My first go at a colour slip stitch pattern, Aster Flower stitch. After 2 false starts I managed it fairly easily, I found the vid to do it on You Tube. My first false start was forgetting how to cast on after 2 years of not knitting I did worry I might be rusty. 2nd false start was using wrong colour on 2nd row. But finally managed it. I'm gonna make a new needle caddy for my first go probably in fairisle and using the bottom of my large water bottle to line the bottom.
