No knitting, but...

I did get a heap done in the garden.   Thomas and I got another fence post in, which leaves just one more to go in where the garage will be.   We also shifted the compost heap with the help of our lovely neighbour.   I think I'll have to build a new one when we shift it back to the garage area later as some of the wood is showing definite signs of not being treated timber!
I don't know if I'll get any more knitting done today, maybe a row or two before bed, but probably not more than that.   I've pulled out my Central Park Hoodie again, though tomorrow it gets put aside for a quick hat.   It's my birthday tomorrow and I'll have to christen my Chiao Goo interchangeable set so I'll be knitting Tweedle by Vintage Purls in some of my earlier handspun:
It's Rambouillet/Merino/Targhee from Squoosh Fiber Arts, spun ages ago.   I was very proud of it at the time, but it's overspun and keeps staring at me from my stash.   It's time to turn it into something wearable and a hat in DK should be fairly quick.

I might not have knitted today, but I do have something to show you, Frau Holle came off the blocking board this afternoon and I got Thomas to take photos.  Forgive the casual attire, it was hot today.
I should really have worn something dark under it to show off the pattern

It is so pretty though, can't wait to wear it.

Thanks Sophie, is it wrong that I now want a cool day in Christchurch so I can wear it?

Good choice, and I have no doubt you have something eminently suitable in your stash!
