Spring Promise

A Sunday morning walk around my Winter Garden

ooh, and at night time I knit!  Finished my beanie
and feel very clever!!

Queen of Knitting (My Mum) made me a Poncho on the knitting machine
I will model it next week and photograph
I bought the wool at the Farmers Market

Spring is definitely on it's way

. . . more Cake

 A cappaccino cake with merangue on the top
 and some very fancy knitting
 even surprising myself
I needed to feel clever!

Yarn Obsessed

 I'm not sure if it's because my mother is staying and she is noteably the
Knitting Queen
 or because it is a particularly cold Winter
but I'm feeling rather "Yarn Obsessed"

College Adventures

Some Mug Rugs to send to my daughter in King Island

where she is having some Yr 9 College Adventures

I sent her one last week, and all her housemates thought they were "so cool" and wished they had one . . . so they're in the post tomorrow!

Look what my clever sister made me!
She keeps camels as pets, and is always fascinated by thier form.
The hump lifts up to put the scented oil, or citronella in.

Lots of Wool about . . .

Glorious Morning Shawl

This is the 2nd one of these I've made;
pattern by Vicki Mikulak on

I picked up this pattern at Lincraft in the free patterns

My daughter is 'slightly' older than said picture, but the pattern said to make it bigger just add a few extra rows "here"

. . . so I did - just so pleased with myself for following a random pattern and completing it so quickly. 

My mum did this beautiful weaving with wool for this scarf

. . . and . . . ta daaaaa

my bag is complete and in circulation

full of pockets and hiding magnetic clasps

I love it!
