Sliding one in

Cheerful company
shortens the miles.
-German proverb

I'm sliding a quick one in here.
I might be out of action for a few days
so I thought I would
quickly show you some of my
knitting .
This will be the second drop off
at the chemist for knitted items to go to
Guardian Angel. The little top made in 8 ply is for a
small child. Infact the arms are about 4 inches long!

Some little guy will be nice and
warm in it. Also made were a few more beanies.
This winter in Australia will be really
cold, so I figure that beanies will be
needed and appreciated.
You may have seen some of these colours before,
I am trying to reduce my stash of wool and
slowly it is happening. The top middle
beanie was knitted from Powder puff wool that
I purchased from Spotlight. It is so lovely to
knit with. The dark beanie is the same
colour as the little jumper shown above.

Now after saying I am trying to reduce my wool
stash, I have to confess....I went to
the craft shop today and purchased some
black 8 ply wool to knit myself a
cardigan!! ooops!

The weekend is just around the corner, I hope
you all enjoy it. Chat
with you soon. Kind regards, Anita.

Thank you Anita for your kind remarks! I so wish I could knit! I learned from a neighbor "mom" when I was about nine yrs. old, but alas, I've forgotten how. Actually, I do love to rug hook in the primitive method - (not latch hooking)- don't know if you're familiar with it in Australia, but it's simple. One of my goals is to learn to knit and crochet!

I just can't get my head round that it is winter in Australia now. We are smack dab in the throes of a hot, humid summer--but I love it! Have a great day!

What a great way to reduce your stash. I'm sure they will be appreciated.
