I've had a break from socks - apart from an itty-bitty pair for Baby Bead. I've done beanies, fingerless mittens, started on a scarf for my mummy.... but what has occupied my knitting time (and dishes, and cooking, and tidying, and...) has been this!
The pattern is from Brave new knits. Best thing - no seams! (Well, only one itty-one - the lace panel on the neckline - and no one can tell. My sewing is getting better.)
PS the brooch I'm wearing as a choker was a 21st present from my grandmother. She'd bought it in the 70s in London.
