Where have I Been?

I have been busy. I have heaps of things knitted, but no photos. I still haven't finished the cardi in the previous post.

I have participated in a mystery knit along on Ravelry, for Tikki knits.

One Sorello is finished, Milly looks fantistic in it. The frattello for Hugh is stalled.

There are 3 babies coming, two for Davids previous teachers and one a neibours first grandchild. I have a hooded cardi allmost finised. Just have to sew the sleeves in and find buttons.

that is it for now.

This is a Tikki design. Bloom. I used 3ply BWM and 2ply red very fine stuff in stash. Made the first size. Beautiful.

This was a 'Oh I just HAVE to knit this" . As soon as I saw the pattern on Knitty I printed it off and got knitting.

The yarn is a mystery 8ply in pink and an ackrillic in blue. Because I used all of the pink up. Great stash buster. I can now see more in the future being gifted with the book Elmo, the patchwork elephant.

Miss Milly, now past 3, decided that Flo is hers. I get in trouble with her if I sugest otherwise.

I have been KNITTING

Here are my beautiful little ones. Miss Milly is modeling a just finished Tikki design Olearia in long stashed purple Willabaa. It is in size 6 and used 2 skeins. This is for a swap Milly will be getting one in Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn that she picked the colour.

Hugh is now 1. He is wearing his Milo. I have modified the milo by adding sleeves. I used the same technique used in a Tomtem jacket. Thanks Elizabeth.

This little jumper keeps him very warm. The yarn is recyled from a allmost finished jumper that I made a mistake on and never finished. That jumper has now become 3 items of clothing for the children.

I am in a serious KNIT THE STASH mode.

New Knitting Areoplane

Knitted with yarn from stash. Patons (us) free pattern.
My mod is the cockpit. Cast on 26st knit 3 rounds, K2, K2tog around, k2tog to end. Thread yarn through stitches pull up tight then sew on and stuff lightly as you go.
This is for a swap. I also put a bell in the middle. So it rattle/tinkles.
