Can I help you weed?

This is what we woke up and found the other priceless! Whats that face all about? Lol Im glad I managed to take the snap when I did because as soon as Milo realised I was there he jumped straight out of the wheel barrow for a morning cuddle. Lol

I have my last knitting order of the year to do and its a big one! A vintage style baby blanket knitted in three ply. I have 248 stitches on my needles and it takes forever to knit 1 inch.. lol

I will show you my progress with this as I go along. The lace edging is going to be stunning on this blanket.
 Such a delicate pattern
 White seems to  be the in colour around here. Even the flowers blooming right now are white!!

Good morning possums!!

Oh wow…….I’ve fallen off the wagon already. All of my heartfelt promises about doing other crafts instead of knitting has not happened!! Lol...mind you I’m going to defend myself here and say that I’ve started a baby blanket that is going to take me a fair while and there is no spare time for any other crafts. So there….I’m all better now.

I will show you next post how I’m going with the baby blanket. I’m really chugging away at this one as it’s knitted in 3 ply and a delicate lace pattern. What I will share with you today is my yarn bombed, knitted Rubik's cube. This was an entry in the show. I wanted to enter something in the yarn bombing section that was a bit different to the traditional things you see. This is where I love Pinterest. I have these favourite boards that I pin my ideas to and I was lucky enough to find a picture of a Rubik's cube. Sorry folks, no pattern….all made up in my head.

This is a blanket I entered in the show and one I enjoyed making so much. It is done in an 8 ply yarn, and if some of you have a sharp eye, you will notice the lace work around the edge is the same lace that I used on 2 baby blankets I have made a while ago.

Today is my last day of holidays and one of the plans on the list to do was to get into the garden. I’m so happy with myself for sticking to it, it’s made me all interested again in the garden. Being honest, I was on the look out for any slithering in the tall grass. I didn’t want to have any encounters with snakes. Our weather is heating up so fast that there have already been snakes found.

Do you ever love a particular project you’ve made so much, that it’s a bit more special than any other? This is the one for me. I saw it at the Perth Royal Show and fell in love with it. I went as far as to track down the entrant and ask where she got the pattern. It was quite a journey to get the pattern but it was so worth it.

A confession now…..I just had to purchase these beautiful shades. I know I’m trying to get rid of my stash, but I crashed and burned here. The devil made me do it. lol

Well today I’m going to be spending time with that wacky crazy bunch from the Ag. Society. We’re holding a fundraiser at a local venue and I just know we’re going to have heaps of fun. 

Perhaps we will start off being on our best behaviour, maybe not.
Have a groovy day gals.

Ciao, Anita.

Well hello possums!! I missed out on posting yesterday so I’m sliding in today. First week of holidays down and I’m very proud to say that I’ve stuck to my plan of getting the weeding done. Two trailer loads and counting.

Last week I prattled on about doing other crafts than just knitting, so I am going to surprise all those non believers out there who emailed me and scoffed about that comment of mine. lol
Drum roll please!!!

Here we have those solid granny squares I told you about last post.....
And here they are together. As you all know what a slacker I am when it comes to buttons and stitching things up, I will have to show you this project when the buttons are on.

Some groovy material =

See you lot, I have it in me to put the knitting needles down. lol

My little girls in sleeping bags are doing well at the markets. How cute is she? you know there had to be knitting somewhere in this post, so here it is. I found a super cool knitting stitch from the net somewhere (in all honesty, I have forgotten where). If anyone is interested just email me and I will do my best to recover the fancy stitch. Oh, it's a coat hanger cover by the way.
 Oh, and here is a collection of coat hangers. They have become very popular at the markets.
Hey gals, I’m so out of here now. Things to do and places to go. Wishing you all a very happy week and hopefully wonderful weather.

Ciao, Anita.
