My mother-in-law asked me would I mind knitting her a jumper. As I have mentioned she has given me a lot of her old knitting books, entire set of circulars and other knitting related stuff, so how could I say no. So that is now going to be my Easter holiday knitting project. It is a very simple stocking stitch, with a roll collar, easy peasy. She must have had the wool in her stash for a very long time because it is one that I can't remember ever seeing, and I used to work in the same street as a wool shop many years ago, which I had to walk past every day at least twice, and would enter at least two to three times a week. It is Patons Winter Wool 12 ply in the most beautiful rich shade of burgundy/maroon. It is 100% pure wool and is a dream to knit. She also gave me four big bags of wool which has some Patons Husky amongst it, the only problem is they are mostly orange tones which is a colour that I am not at all into, any suggestions would be appreciated.
Footy season kicks off tonight, (Australian Rules that is) I can think of nothing better than a game of football on TV, a nice glass of red or two and my knitting aaaahhhhhh. I hope my team North Melbourne, or kangaroos as they are now better known as, goes ok this year.
And finally if anybody reads this humble little ol' blog of mine, I wish you a very happy and safe Easter. Till next time, Sharon :)
