I tried adding the following photo in my previous post but Blogger has been a little bit disagreeable of late and would only let me upload the one pic. I am not going to whinge as you get what you pay for!!!
Here is the beanie that a lady in my favourite book store asked me to make for her sons birthday, wrapped and ready to be delivered. I can tell you that she was very pleased with it and she actually paid me for it, YAY money for doing what I love. The yarn is 6o% wool and 40% acrylic which I bought off ebay and the pattern is from
THIS PATTERN BOOK and is a k1 p1 rib beanie in 8ply.
I am feeling much better now and can face next week with a lot more energy than what I had this past week, which is just as well as my auntie is coming over from Victoria to stay with us so I will be giving my house the big 'spring clean' so that I can spend the following week relaxing with her and not having to worry about the dust etc.
Yesterday we had the dress fitting and I was pleasantly surprised that it had to be taken in, I was so worried that it would have to be let out. They are beautiful dresses and Janelle looked absolutely lovely in hers.
Our knitting group had our first market stall yesterday and from what I can gather a lot of lookers/fondlers but not too many buyers but hopefully as the weather gets cooler so will the buyers and they will be in need of a nice warm woollie or two. Cindy has a photo of our humble little stall over on her BLOG if you want to go take a peek. Oh well that is all for now, hopefully the order from Bendigo turns up tomorrow so that I can start my cabled shrug as mentioned in the previous post.
