The sweetest
conversation between
friends
is the silent
communication of their hearts.
Howdy doing!!! Hope you’re are trotting along nicely and having a fantastic day!! Mine day is dancing along real well. Tragically.....I’m still hooked on knitting and/or crocheting cowls. I need help....can someone stop me??? Lol  I have found  a sweet crochet pattern. I have adapted this little cream cowl to a smaller size and added a.....crocheted thing on it as a tie.


Here is a close up of the pattern. The pattern is called Infinity scarf but I have to tell you there are several styles of infinity scarves out there. I saw one made in chunky yarn on youtube and you knit it using your hands not needles. Didn't really do much for me, but others might like it. I did love making this infinity scare though, it was such fun to make. Click here for the pattern of the original. 

If people give you yarn......

Some people I know are feeding my addiction. Lol They give me all this yummy yarn that I just have to use and they know it. A message I will send out to you all is.....if you get small amounts of yarn given to you don’t panic, there is always something you can make. I know I can’t make cowls forever.......or can I?..... but as the internet is available to us, you can find so many small projects to make using this stuff!!! I know at the moment I have cowl on the brain, but at other times I have made heaps of beanies, or baby mittens, bootees etc. It’s heaps fun to create

Talking about donated yarns.....
Here is my latest project. With some of the donated 3 ply yarn I decided to make myself a knitted scarf and found this super soft and fab pattern on ravelry. Click here for the pattern. It is an amazing pattern, one that you follow by chart. Have a great time, I’m loving it.

 Oh yes......another cowl.......oops!

 Hey, here’s a go....not a cowl!!!! Slid in this little baby beanie, just for a change.
I’ve been busy in the library...
I really love decorating the library with lovely displays, here are a couple I’ve had fun with. On other fronts I have been busy in the library too!! I am training the kids up to realise my hair is not grey, it is actually ‘ash blonde’. I’m having fun with that one. The reaction from the kids is priceless, I hope the kids aren’t scared when they leave primary school after having a library officer like me!!! Lol



We’ve been Lucky enough to have some much wanted rain, but the only draw back is I can’t get into my shed to sew. Hmmm...I see the rain has stopped now. I’ll take this opportunity to buzz off out the back there and whip that sewing machine to bits. Have a super great day and knock around with people who give you heaps of positive vibes...they’re delicious to hang out with.

Cheers, Anita.

How come you can't get to your shed to sew if it rains?

I can never see you getting over your knitting addiction. That one is there for life! Just keep enjoying it.
Great to see the library display. I used to be able to convince the younger grade that I was always 21, right up until retirement. Love it.
So pleased you have some rain. That will make the garden very happy!

What a fun post Anita! - the little blue/white stripe hat reminds me of a hat that my son was given as a newborn from the hospital. Yes we have all been desperate for rain here in WA, so it's good you are getting some.
