A sensitive plant in a garden grew,
And the young winds fed it with silver dew.
- Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant".
I have finally finished my dolls. The material I purchased from Collingully
was certainly put to good use. I love making these dolls.
My friend Heather and I have decided that next year's annual show is going to
be flooded with knitted items. I know Heather has made a start on her collection
and I certainly have made a start on mine. Below are a few things I have been
knitting, all baby gear to start with and then I will make a start on things like
tea cosies, bags, toys and other items that might take my fancy.
This little beauty below with the hood was a knitted item that was an entry in the show. I
fell in love with the pattern and asked the kind lady if I could have the pattern. Lovely Lorraine,
who is my neighbour kindly let me have the pattern and away I went. The jacket is
actually knitted in 8 ply, not 3 or 4 ply. So it knitted up very fast.
Pretty in mauve, a lovely dress, mattinee jacket and bonnet set. This is knitted in 4 ply
and lovely wool to knit with.
Another pretty knitted dress and another pattern I just had to knit up is this cute
vintage pattern. On one of my visits to the Op shop I found this old knitting/crochet book and
spotted the pattern.
I have also found the time to sew as well! Yesterday a friend of mine dropped off a bag of
goodies and in the bag was a piece of material I had to make into something straight away. In my
next posting I will tell you about this friend of mine.
about birdhouses, so this material was a treat to receive. Today I am ahead with housework and have even taken up the legs on a pair of work trousers for Pixie, and replaced a broken zip in Cory's school shorts. I now plan to do some knitting, keep an ear out for the chooks laying eggs as I have an egg stealer in the brood and generally have a relaxing day. I hope you are all having a relaxing day as well. Kind regards, Anita.
