What a wonderful world!
Hey Good morning guys! What a wonderful day, what a wonderful world! So many great things are happening around here....lovely spring weather, in Western Australia we have just had a long weekend, I’m on holidays for 2 weeks, had a super fantastic day at the Royal Show in Perth.......heaps fun. lol

I went to the Royal Show on Sunday to help support our Ag Society, and what a crazy day it was. I was accompanied by Fiona and Heather (two crazies that are also members of our wacky group). We laughed all day, we went walking, eating, poking fun at each other and enjoying our time. Thanks girls, it’s fun acting 18 again, though I was the best behaved. 

This ball of tangled wool caused such fun and mischief between these two rat bags, myself and the people checking out our display. 

I have admitted to being the Etsy Queen after having found a terrific Italian site with craft items to purchase.....well this is my creation with some cool knitting tape I purchased recently.

I wanted to try a particular stitch from a knitting book I found at the library and then I used this pattern to work from. It has turned out lovely and the colour is pretty groovy too. The tape is similar to the knitting nylon but softer and about 4mm wide.
Why not have a look yourself, click here to visit.

And speaking of  Italy,  a purchase through......er........etsy. 
One of my most favourite colours in the world.
I found this top here. I'm naughty. lol
I have come to terms with the fact that I'm addicted to knitting....there....I admitted it!! lol I have decided to really try and pick up a crochet hook, or a sewing needle more often. I have been trying to do this for many years, so here's a start.
I have wanted to try solid granny squares for ages, so here is a start on some crocheting. I didn't need YouTube to help me with this because I knew the basic stitches, so I was very eager to make a start on this. I have more squares to go and I will show you what I have made. 
I have also made these ones and they will be for a multi coloured blanket....or something. lol Why not have a try at this stitch if you're into learning crochet, it's very easy.

Ciao until next time, Anita.

And ..... you're a clever little crocheter .... those granny squares are very cool . If I remember correctly, your last post mentioned Heather unravelling wool .....and she is still at it....my goodness she is a tragic!! Arrivederci signorina Anita. =)
