There has been knitting

First Swiss Knit nearly done - Jolien from Rowan Studio 3. I have used Felted Tweed Jolien and I am very pleased so far (wait until I have treid it on and then I'l see if I am still pleased).

I wasn't sure about the whole 'round the arm' thing - but of course maybe I am getting too old and set in my ways ;0) I also did the collar to about 13 cm instead of 17cm.

Fresh off the back of that, I have started a Debbie Bliss Coastlines pattern in a deep pink. I am not sure how I feel about the Cathay yarn. Again, it seems quite loosely plied and I wonder how it will stand up to general wear and tear.....

Off to tax my bike. That's the push bike, not motor variety.Yep, In der Schweiz one taxes ones bicycle.

I love the colour saturation of the DB Cathay - but in my experience it doesn't wear too well. The loose ply became sort of fuzzy over time and wear if you know what I mean. Not sure I will knit with it again, which is a shame as the colour choices are stunning.

Darls,it's not the tax but the insurance that comes with it thats important,it's a liability insurance and covers u i think for up to 1 million:)shuld you decide to bump into another persons car and damage it:) when you're racing downhill:) a measly 6.50 annual premium to pay for a 1mill insurance, not bad a deal IMHO

If you'd seen on my bike today you'd be amazed to think of me zooming anywhere ;0)
