Keep raining!!!





Goodness is the only
investment that never fails.
-Henry David Thoreau

A happy Sunday to everyone, we’re very happy in our parts as we are having some lovely rain this morning. Our farmers need the rain desperately so we're hoping for a good lot of it. This week has been very productive for me and this is what I've been up to......I purchased some Fantasia by Patons and knitted up this cute little dress.....
 
'
knit one, purl one, knit one...

made a fantastic patchwork cushion and insert..


even spent some time making grannie squares...


A lovely Italian man who drops books off at the library tells me his mother has broken both of her hands in a fall and hasn't finished knitting a baby shawl for a baby due any time now. I though I would give this to her as a gift to give to the baby on her behalf. Knitted in 2 ply merino wool and silk.
 


A funky green hot water bottle cover knitted using 8 ply yarn. Should be great for cold winter nights.

Well really, that's about it for me. I've had a fantastic week at work, had some great news that the stork is going to deliver another baby  in December......Congratulations Jacinta. Life's pretty good you know!! I can't complain. See you next time,
Anita
