There’s nothing worth the wear of winning,
but the laughter and the love of friends.
Slowly but surely I have started to plough into the bag of wool a friend kindly gave me and there are some interesting yarns in there. A silky smooth brown coloured yarn came into mind, a bit tricky as to what ply it was. Not having the patience to knit up a sample to check the ply, I decided to have a go at a slouch pattern because I couldn’t really go wrong...if it doesn’t fit an adult it will fit a child......
Drats....it fits a child!! lol
Lol I will put this away to sell at the craft shop. Turned out lovely though. A nice cable pattern and one I enjoyed making. The yarn I was using was probably a 4 ply but I will dig up a bit of 8 ply and make this hat again.

Also from the same exciting bag I found just one ball of this incredible yarn with many textures. Not enough to make a vest, I figured it would make a nice scarf, so I’ve whacked 10 sts on the needle and increased to 14 sts and away I go. It measures about 2 inches across and as I will double it up, I will make it fairly long.
Roll on winter!!
Unable to forget about knitting toys, Heather has kindly let me use one of her knitting books to check out some different toys to knit. A very helpful friend is Heather......always trying to help me get out of housework (or into trouble). It is a book that has been around for a while and they’re the ones I love the most.
Around our part of the world, the heat just doesn’t want to give up easy, but this week you can feel autumn is trying to push it’s way in. A little relief in the mornings for the poor old garden.
Some of my happy friends.
Have a lovely week my friends, each day is special and full of some sort of crafting projects to be made. Enjoy every sun rise, every beautiful breathe you take and be happy.
