On my mind...another item finished

Today, being Friday, means that I'm joining in with Rhonda Jean's  Down to earth  Friday feature, "On my mind'. On my mind today is a feeling of accomplishment. Two finishes!

At the end of July, I wrote a post  here about getting inspiration from some balls of yarn I took home from a Knit and Natter session of K4BN. A photo that accompanied the post showed about 3 inches of a new throw that I was knitting for the charity. I finished the knitting just over a week ago but didn't get on to the finishing off details until yesterday. But now it's all ready to hand in on Monday at the Scarborough Knit and Natter group. I enjoyed working with colours that are a bit different to those I normally 'gravitate' to. On Monday I also have another throw to hand my favourite colours!

It looks the same as all the other ones I've made because of the similar colours! lol

I have been 'auditioning' yarns for a new and special project that I'm starting. I'm going to be a bit secretive at the moment about this project but promise to 'tell all' when it's completed! lol  It won't be that old quickknit favourite of mine...the  2 row garter stitch chevron; although I'll probably have one of those 'on the go' in the next few weeks in case a raffle is needed for the church Christmas craft market later in the year :-) .

The colours are brilliant, and the chevron pattern is so striking :D)
