She's at it again.

Water is the driving
force of all nature.
- Leonardo da Vinci

I've decided that I might have to hide my hands off myself......I'm still knitting. I suppose I could have a worse habit, but I am supposed to be doing other things. I have been mindful of my obsession with knitting, and kept a nice flow of stitching happening.
This is such a cute design and I love the way the wording has been written.
I am right into the redwork, it is so appealing. This block is still on the go and it is almost finished. I have 3 more to go.
Now back to my obsessive habit of knitting, I found a stack of feather type of wool stashed away in a bag. I thought I might get in early for winter and knit myself a lovely scarf.
I didn't have enough of the flutter or flurry wool so I decided to make stripes in the scarf. I have used a strand of the thorobred throughout and a strand of the other wool, alternating the colours into stripes. It is coming up very nice.

 The colours have come up a bit bright, as usual with my photography, but the colours look nice together. I will probably have a bit left over to make a cute little beanie....not for me.

Pixie and Brandon have gone out shooting for a while, so that leaves me in peace and quiet...almost with Cory, to make tea, finish the washing and a few other bits, before bathtime. Pixie and Cory had a great weekend of go karting, and have come home a lovely shade of red from the wind.

I'm off to the kitchen now, the long way around so I don't go anywhere near the lounge room....and my knitting bag. Have a great night all. Kind regards, Anita.

Your stitchery is lovely and so is the knitting.
Don't you just wish there was more time in a day so that we could do everything that needs to be done (chores) as well as have enough time or more than enough time to do the things that we enjoy!(crafting)
