The Ashes finished today, after only three and a half days. And Australia won, which was gratifying. What was also gratifying was how great the atmosphere was and how much knitting I got done. After finishing the Elm sock for Leon during day two I cast on Celestine , by Cecily Glowik MacDonald. Just like the Aussie Cricket Team, I made surprisingly good progress, and before stumps today I had divided for the sleeves. I had to make it stripy as I'm determined to use up some of my stash, and I didn't have enough of any one colour. I'm happy with the way it is looking, just a touch nautical.
