What I knitted today

I am far too easily bored. So although I have three knitting projects on the go, I decided to do something different today and picked this

reader pattern from the current issue of Simply Knitting. The instructions called for a circular needle but a) I don't like circular needles, b) I didn't have one in the right size and c) why fork out for one when the yarn would cost nothing and the project might be a disaster? I knitted it on two needles using some black DK wool and the same Wendy Shimmer that I used for my scarf. So I now have this

to coordinate with it. Here it is again, modelled rather unsuccessfully by Barney.
