Happy Colourful Kind-of-New-Year!

I don't think it's necessary to have your own children to think of September as the beginning of a new year - I recall feeling the same way pre-kids. Since I was in school myself, the summer holidays marked the end of one year and new beginnings - new pencil case, new coat, new shoes. Over the last few weeks, especially as we've been busy with other things, I was starting to feel that my knitting mojo had vanished. I didn't realise it was actually on holiday and would be back with a bang for September. I have a serious case of startitis. 

First a Noro triangle. I thought I had two balls of this unidentified yarn (purchased long ago, the ball band is missing and I don't know what it is) but by the time I'd knit this much of a garter triangle bandana....
.... I realised the other was another colourway entirely. I'm not sure what to do with it now but it's so pretty the immediate answer is "nothing". So I cast on something else...
WIPs and books September 3rd 2014 - entrelac
I've never tried Entrelac knitting before but have a fun project coming up which necessitated figuring it out! This is just a practice swatch using Drops Fabel, but you can expect more in the coming weeks - it's fun and much much easier than I expected it to be. (Yes, you're right - I'm using children's needles. My 4mm circulars are all in use on other projects and I can't bear the weight of long straight needles so these are perfect.)

I am also working on ANOTHER new colourful project which I'm already completely in love with. I can't wait to show it to you... but that's for another day, so I'll bid you farewell for now. Before I go, a reminder of The Handmade Fair giveaway - head on over to the this post and leave your comment to be in with a chance to win a pair of tickets!
