Furious knitting.

Instill the love of you into all the world,
for a good character is what is remembered.
-The Teaching for Merikare, par. 24

This week was full of furious knitting to get things finished and to get new projects on the go. Since I decided to hold a stall at our local markets, orders have started to fly in. I have made a head start with my headbands for this coming winter and they are topped off with cute little crocheted flowers.......
 Easy as pattern. Click here.

My collection of baby beanies is starting to grow. It’s a simple pattern using double rib for the band and stocking stitch for the main section of the beanie.

 Another knitting order to be filled – 1 baby jacket for a 3 week old babe and a jacket for her 3 year old sister. The cardigan below is on the go, using 4 ply baby yarn and a good old vintage pattern.

 What! Who did this??.......
 No, I dont believe it was Mr. Gorilla....

On a happier note, I was given this lovely piece of fabric and I can see it being used on one of my library displays at work.

I’m off to get a ruffle bag made in my sewing shed. Before I take off into the abyss I just want to send well wishes to all Aussie folk experiencing the rotten cyclones we’ve got happening on both sides of the country. We’ve only had the winds and rain. In the north end of Western Australia, we’ve had pretty nasty destruction due to the cyclone. I hope our eastern states folk are holding on tight.

Love to John and Jane.                           

Cheers, Anita.Image result for clipart small images

There's been a picture of the cutest crocheted baby cloche hats going around on FB. Have you seen it? I love them! I bet you could make them!

I like your blog. I stumbled on it from 1 xmas item a month. I'm a knitting grandmother raising my granddaughter in Minnesota, USA.

Great crafted items this week Anita - love those crochet flowers. You will have to let us see what you decide to use that lovely bright fabric for in the library.

You have been busy with all your knitting. I am so pleased your work is being appreciated with your sales and orders.
Looks like your Milo is keeping you on your toes well and truly!
We have been spared the main weather problems here - just seem to be having earthquakes instead!
