Happy New Year!

For New Year's eve Leon and I, along with our wonderful friends Skip and B went to New Years Eve on the Hill, a music festival outside Loch, in Gippsland. It was in an amazing spot, with breathtaking views.

The farm that hosted the event is a working cattle farm - we could see the cows on the next hill over. While there were no sheep on the farm itself, there was a petting zoo, and I had an awesome time visiting with the lambs and goats.

The evenings were chilly, and I finally had an opportunity to take some pictures of Leon wearing Knockamore.

I really like the way it looks on him, and the stunning way the Bennet and Gregor yarn knit up. It's even and dense, but not rigid. 

This picture is of the side detailing, which, prior to knitting it, I had not realised was part of the pattern. For those of you who recall how heavily I hated on this jumper while knitting it, these panels are why. Twisted stitches on every second row, in a pattern that should be inituative, but I really struggled to memorise.

Anyway, all's well that ends well, and I really love the look and fit of the finished jumper.

It was basically a perfect couple of days out of the city. Great people, good music and surprisingly, loads of time for knitting on my Ashes cardigan., which is coming along nicely.
