Found matching green colours in my alpaca- left-over-bag. Simple stockinette knitting while you are trying to get well. A shawl, of course. Stripes - 4 rows main colour, 4 rows contrasting colour. Soothing. Well known pattern. Makes me happy. Hopefully make me well enough to go to work any time soon.
So, this is how far I got this afternoon while watching 2 episodes (season one) of Foyle's War. A perfect series to knit while watching. UK, during the WWII and lots of knitted sweaters and vests worn by the actors.
