{knitting} Back to normality?

We're back from our - just about - 2 weeks away in the caravan, school is back on and normality may be reinstated soon.

Earlier this week I realised I will not have enough wool to finish the owls jumper I'm working on (of which I don't have pictures, so apologies on that score!). I was not happy. I bought the wool around 18 months ago, while I still worked at baa ram ewe, and there is no way I'll be able to find the same dye lot. Moreover, I'm only about 2 inches off the cast off. Ugh! Knitting is a pain at times! I ordered another ball and I'm hoping for the best. In the meantime, I started something else:
Something is cooking...

The lighting in my kitchen is showing it as blue. It's a teal in real life.

It'll be a Flanders Bay Pullover which is gorgeous and has been on my ravelry queue since it was published. That's another lot of wool I bought a very long time ago and now I'm paranoid that I won't have enough again.

I am very excited about this project. I've waited such a long time to get it going that I can't wait to finish it now. I started it this morning using Ysolda's Tubular Cast On. Although I followed the Little Red in the City instructions. This is such a clever and effective way to cast on for ribbing! I use it for every jumper I make.

Hopefully I'll be able to post more now that the children are back in school and we're living out of our house as opposed to out of a caravan.
