I have indeed finished the knitting projects I set out to make using the pink cotton. Here it is...
I'm just hunting around for some nice pink ribbon and we're set. I know someone special will get this, but I just don't know who that some one is just yet. Maybe a special niece of mine will be expecting some time in the near future...hmm? The cotton was lovely to knit with and I know paying $11.00 for 50 gm is a bit over board but I just knew I had to knit with it. It was as soft as I expected. Sometimes you feel a wool or cotton and think yes that will be lovely and it turns out all hard and stiff, well this is so soft.
In the mail yesterday I received a parcel filled with some goodies. I'm a spoilt little thing. Vicki sent me this wonderful stash of doll patterns and with the weekend coming up and two boys going to go karts....well.
I can see what will happen!! Thanks very much Vicki, you are too kind Batwoman! I'm doing my washing today in readiness for a dentist visit in Perth tomorrow (yuk) and it should be smooth sailing on the weekend. I just hope I can put my knitting needles down. Talking about knitting, no sooner had I finished the bootees and bonnet, the wool from the other stash I had purchased, cast on to my knitting needles. I am going to make something for myself for the next winter season.
This is the wool I purchased at a recent trip to a little town called Toodyay. It was a good price and feels lovely to the touch. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I will show you the pattern next time. I found it on a free knitting site. Well it is time to go and hang that washing up before I start cooking tea for my three darlings. Til next time....Kind regards, Anita.
