I am really so pleased to have got this - i think it will see me through the hot days, and looks to be straightforward to put together. I think my first attempt will be version 1 (on the right) but short sleeved. I am yet to purchase material, but there are some great places online for buy vintage fabrics, so i think this is the perfect oppertunity to indulge.
I started another scarf last night using Colinette Skye in colourway Banwy. I only ordered one ball and two balls of Art to knit together for contrast - but when they arrived i didn't think it would work so well so am rethinking my projects. The skye is lovely chunky wool though. (i think aran weight) perfect for scarf knitting-simple and satisfying (no more daisy stitches!).
I have some black wool to knit a crow. I will leave you with a picture of a pony i knitted:
