Out of my comfort zone

My latest finish is totally out of my comfort zone. I don't like to knit animals, or objects like food or vegetables. Fun to look at, but not my cup of tea.
But some time ago a friend asked for a knitted moon, and as it was her birthday, I couldn't refuse.
So I knitted and cursed the knitting LOL.
But I kept on knitting. And when I reached the hat, I finally got some fun too.
My friend is happy with it and it turned out to be a gift for her daughter, who is pregnant. When I heard that, I was happy I finished the job.
There is another start, The Doddler, a mystery Kal by Stephen West. All knitters have heard about it, I suppose. And I decided to jump in. Usually I am not that fond on mysteries. You don't know what your precious wool is going to be. Clue one was okay, but clue two is a complete surprise. Cabling sidewards and I love it!
Clue #1
Clue #2
Clue #3 asks for another colour, so I join some blue. Its going to look like this. Great fun!

Je maan is enig geworden en gaat heel goed terecht komen.
Je mysterie ziet er veelbelovend uit, mooie kleuren, veel plezier met de komende clues.

I understand - I am not one to make little cute animals and such. The best I could do was I made some clothes for the youngest grandaughters doll - for Christmas. I will send a photo if I can.

Die maan had ik al bewonderd, maar die shawl! Wat een leuke mysterie! Dat wordt er weer eentje om zelf te gaan dragen. ;)
