I think I have set myself a bit of a challenge.
This pattern and wool caught my eye when I was out buying card today... I know, I am so easily distracted.

Although to be fair, it wasn't actually that random. I was out getting more card for Noah's Bar Mitzvah invitations, so my mind was thinking "Bar Mitzvah..." and whilst in the BM zone, when I saw this pattern, it immediately jumped out at me to be the perfect solution to the cardi conundrum I had been having to wear with the dress I had bought for synagogue.

See, not quite so random...
apart from the fact that I'd already decided I was after a yellow cardi. Yes, I know, this wool isn't yellow. But it is oh so super soft extra fine marino wool that didn't come in yellow.

So not only do I now have wool for a cardi to knit up in less than 3 months time (that really can't be the case) but I have wool for a cardi that isn't yellow.

I guess I won't be accessorising in yellow after all...
