I started a new WIP this weekend. It’s named ‘There and back again’, because I was watching the Hobbit for the second time when I started knitting it. I do think that the colours and pattern are quite Middle Earth/ Hobbit suited.
I can’t help it, ever since I saw the movie again I’ve been in a very Tolkien-ish world (yes that is a word). Despite all my reading load for the uni I really want to start reading the series again and a Lord of the Rings movie marathon will happen…as soon as I find people who are willing to watch it with me!

The pattern is part of the Westy’s Besties collection, and there is currently a knit-a-long going group for this collection. Every week on friday Stephen West will relace 2 or 3 patterns which belong to this collection. In the group there is lots of talk going on, colour advice, general cheer etc. You can find the group here if you want to join.
I still need to decide what colour to use for the brim and the top. I’m torn between ‘donkey’ grey and ‘goldcrest’ yellow. Perhaps one of you can help me decide?

Well, I’m very much enjoying the knitting now, so I’ll turn off my computer now, and I’ll see you later!
Ps.: Thanks for all the reactions to my last post on the blog, twitter or in person. I really appreciate it. 🙂
