Two Great Finished Objects!!

Firstly after 2plus years of effort and cussing. TTaa Daa... my partners dream car.

A Ford GT40 replica.

Not an original colour but so what. I am very proud of him and of myself as I did help too. In this photo it has just been REGISTERED. Now he can drive it to his hearts content.

Now for My FO.

Green socks for my 3yo. He has been pestering me since I measured him up for them to finish. Now they are and I cannot get them off him. He is rather determined to have more knitted for his feet.

Apologies for the photo as he just would NOT stand still for a photo. He just wanted to dance. Sweetie.

Now casting on more socks.

A Lovely start to the Day

Today at 7:30am

What a beautiful morning. Lots of thick fog and only 6deg c.

This is a promise of a lovely sunny clear day. The Chookies will love it.

Hat No 2 is now done. I carried a strand of patonlyle along with the blue. Any comments on the effect?

I didn't like the patonlye as a sock so this is a way of using it up. It adds a bit of interest I think.

Now to finish another pair of socks, start a pair of socks for me and get back into the mystery shawl. Oh and I have cast on another hat too.

No self control

LOOK, this is what I found in a new to Geelong shop. Stitchery Blue from Williamstown has opened a shop in Ryrie St, just down from Grithiths Book store. Lovely, just lovely.

Italian yarn but most likely Australian wool. I bought two balls and they will become socks for ME.

I also bought 2mm needles and that is what I have swatched with. I really like the hand of the fabric and it knits up soo soft. The yarn was just under $10 a ball too. 100% merino, 8ply. There is also a good range of solid colours too.

Currently knitting other socks. More when finished.
