WIPs and FOs

The WIPs haven't changed much since I last examined the shameful pile of stuff that needs more attention before I can sign it off. But...does this collection count as a finished item? I've been knitting up sample swatches of each colourway of our new multi coloured aran, Stella Jacq from Adriafil. I'm thinking myself lucky that there are only 6 varieties available. You can see from the picture what a range of shades there are, but you can't tell how lovely it feels to knit. And it's 100% machine washable wool.

So, what I'm thinkig now is, is Easter too soon to start knitting for Christmas? The answer, of course, is no...

Thanks, Maddie!

(And Joe made me a card featuring a ball of wool. They know me so well.)
