I decided what to do with my hand dyed Blue Faced Leicester. The Holiday 2009 edition of Vogue Knitting has a lovely cabled cardigan with belt (#17) and the guage is perfect with my new wool (yes, I did the swatch to check). I started it last week, but it is on 3.5mm needles and quite fine, so I waited until I had enough to photograph. It starts with the back and the right sleeve and knits sideways across the whole back until the decrease for the left sleeve. The front is worked from the sleeve edge to the center for each half.
I have also done a few more chains in my chain link fence scarf. I do this when reading a chart to knit each row feels to involved (I am too tired or lazy). So both are progressing slowly.
