Round and round

I finally got around to finishing this off this morning - just had one small seam to sew at the edges of the border and darn in the ends, but it's been hanging about a while now.
Knitted in the round, in lambswool that I got from the Scrapstore, about 30'' or so across. When finished, it was washed, then dyed in one piece with nettles, using an alum mordant. The pattern is from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac, one of  my all-time favourite knitting books. There is one small patch where the dye is uneven , but that's the nature of handmade with love :)

Amazing, you are so talented! I am completing my first sock on 5 needles and I am struggling. I am prone to not starting, or not finishing a project throught fear of failure. I must get to the end of that sock! (rubbish pattern is not helping). What keeps you going?
