Slowing Down A Bit.....

I finished that cardi that I started a couple of weeks back but am yet to take a pic of it all sewn up so this one of it finished and ready to be sewn up will have to do for now... :)Isn't that green just divine??? I used the same yarn that I did back here and loved every minute of it... It's so super soft and lovely to knit with....
We started pulling down and building a new fence around our farm house last weekend and I'm finding alot of my spare time consumed by this task so the knitting has slowed down for now.... I'm getting some specially made gates from my Mum's engineering business and from her many designs I'm finding it hard to choose between these 2.... I'm leaning more towards the first one as it was named after my little princess 'Connie' but I think it may be needing a little swirly thing added to the top like the one in the second pic to jazz it up a bit... The second one is good too but maybe the mesh down the bottom needs to be on the diagonal like the first one.... Decisions decisions???? I'd love to hear what you think??? Any feed back would be great!!!!!
Take Care and have a FANTASTIC weekend!!!!!

  5. I love the green - wonderful choice. My 2 cents worth - I agree with you - the first gate with the added bit from the top of the second. Lovely gates, may need one for my new place... Are they on the web?

  15. Beautiful green, I agree and I also agree with he first gate but maybe a bit of jazzing up like the bottom one. Good luck with choosing.

  16. I like the first gate based on the diagonal wired base. But I do like the top section of the second one too.
