WIP Wednesday #6 Two at a time

Yes people I have TWO on the go, shock, horror, she of the only one project at a time, finally gave in and cast on something else. It was actually too hot for knitting my Ten Stitch so decided to cast on a door stop - quick, simple and small.

So here it is -
 the parts

close up

I used Zettl Sensatione from Lidl or Aldi - its a huge 400g ball that hubby picked up for me last year, self patterning.  The pattern called for 100g of yarn but mine only took 40g so hardly made a dent.  I have sewn it up - the instructions were a tad confusing for placing the base but I got there!  Just need to find something to fill it with, then I can show you what it looks like.

I have made some progress on the Ten Stitch, I'm using 6 colours for this one and using 5 colours for each round, dropping/adding one colour each time.  I think I'm happy with it.  I have received so many compliments on my blue/grey one that I hope I can achieve the same pleasing effect.
