A finish for April

This month has been busy so far with work, studying and family stuff.  I'm coming to the end of my current module so am working on a final assignment for that.

I have found the time for some knitting - my latest finished object is a hat.

The pattern is Gretel by Ysolda Teague and the yarn is Soft Donegal by Donegal yarn.  It's gorgeous green colour and is a souvenir of my visit to Dublin in September.  I visited the lovely This is knit in Dublin whilst I was there and bought a few skeins of this in green and in purple also.  The yarn is absolutely fantastic to knit with and has great cable definition.  I foresee a cabled hoodie in my future with this yarn someday.

The pictures in this post are the first ones I've taken with a new camera.  Sadly earlier in the week, my much loved Fuji camera hit the floor for what must be the millionth time but this time it  didn't recover from the fall.  So I treated myself to a very compact Lumix FS40 which is tiny compared to my old fuji.  The first few pictures are much better than with my old camera so its looking to be a good purchase.
