Yarn and zombies

I have just ordered the exact yarn for the top in the second picture below and in the same colour. The pattern looks ok, a couple of odd bits. I am not keen on the way that Drops patterns are written, they can be confusing as they are all laid out in huge paragraphs. Probably because they are translations. I usually re-write bits of them to make them easier to follow and so I don't miss something.

Anyway, hopefully my yarn should arrive tomorrow - SKD are pretty good at next day delivery. I have the second foot of my Conwy socks to finish and then I can start on this top. I'm actually excited about a knitting project for the first time in a while!

Check out this etsy seller cheezombies - she sells patterns for little knitted creatures, really cute and funny!

I totally know what you mean about the DROPS patterns, and how they're not that easy to read. I tend to pass on them because of this, but it seems such a shame considering they're all free!

I love the color of that yarn. And those knitted creatures patterns are so cute.
