Firstly a few completed projects:
by: Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: my own handspun
Needles: 4.5mm circulars
Pattern: Spiral Socks
Yarn: Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarns - Wool/Nylon
Needles: 2.5mm circulars
And some Spinning:
The yarn is Kauni Effekgarn in colour way EH - blue/beige/chocolate and was bought at Astrid's Dutch Obsessions. I love the large swatches of colour and the changes are so well done that at first you don't realise you're changing colours. Needles are 3.25mm circulars.
And from the postman
Well actually Knitting without Tears came from Borders. The other two from Amazon in the US and Japan. The 1000 knitting patterns is absolutely worth the money (even though 300 of the stitches are crochet). I've already gained much inspiration. And of course Elizabeth Zimmerman is a perennial favourite. I don't know why I've avoided her books until now but I've become addicted.
Well I can't promise to be good this week. Tomorrow the family is going to Lismore for the day and then on Thursday it is off to Nundle with my wonderful girlfriends.
Keep smiling :-)
