Woo! Another finish! I'm off to a great start this year. This has to be one of my quickest knits as well, because this time last week I'd only just added it to the list and ordered the yarn!
I started it on Tuesday, as soon as the yarn arrived. I had a few issues initially, mainly down to tiredness and not reading the pattern correctly, but once I'd got myself straightened out it flew off the needles!
I love that something can look so complicated and yet be so simple to actually knit. Because you're only ever worrying about six stitches at a time, you really don't notice how quickly it grows. By the time I hit the green I didn't even need to reference the pattern any more either.

I love that the colour change from greens to pinks happens right in the middle.
It used up just under half the ball as well, so I could make another one if I wanted! The beauty being, a second one would be completely different to the first because of the colour changes in the yarn. I might have a look for other patterns I could use it for first though, and fall back on a second one if I can't find anything else I like.
