Today is my test piece of the Triple L Tweed Pattern.

I'm going to make a scarf with collar with this pattern at the end of next month, when I get the yarn for part of my birthday I'm doing it in similar colours to this piece, Black, Orange and White. Got the black but need the orange and more white.This is a very easy pattern in slip stitch. I found it on You Tube.

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.
