I have been very critical in the past about Australian patterns being so far behind the current fashion trends but today I have to take my hat off to
Patons for coming out with Zhivago Summer Knits. The pictures are a sample of what is on offer and yes I come home from LYS with it in my hot little hand, dreaming of future projects.
On the knitting front I will finish the tweed wrap over the weekend, all going well that is, weekend plans can sometimes change at the drop of a hat but my plan is to finish the wrap and then work some more on the squirrel jacket. I did buy more yarn from LYS, bad girl I am, but I am not starting anything new until I finish the jacket for Ashley otherwise winter will be over. It has been snowing in Hobart and some of the schools were closed, it is very cold here at the moment, our woodheater (yes I am one of those terrible people adding to Launcestons smoke problem) usually heats up our whole house but this morning I had to put the column heater in the hallway to heat up the bedrooms. The spammers have left me alone, I ended up with five in one day and the last one was crude, makes you wonder if it is the same person, whoever they are they definately need to get a life.
