My friend Vicki called in on Monday and left me with all of this as she no longer has the time to knit. Obviously there is way too much here for me and as there is baby wool and cotton amongst it, neither of which I normally knit with, I intend to share it.
I have now sorted through it all and decided what I am going to keep and the rest I am taking along to SnB on Tuesday and they can have fun choosing what to add to their stashes. I have already put the light mauve on the left, aside for Katt a nice 4ply pure wool. Thanks Vicki, I know she reads my blog, and be assured your stash is going to very good yarn loving homes.
I am currently knitting for the market which is held on the last Saturday of the month in Yorktown Square, I have completed some Muse Hats out of Patons Jet, which is a lovely soft 12ply yarn consisting of 70% wool and 30% alpaca. I am yet to cast on for the Opal socks, but that will happen over the next few days, for the time being I am going to knit a couple of Pantas and see how they go.
This photo was taken at about 8.30 this morning, just to prove to the rest of Australia that we do actually get sun down here!! Oh okay so it is only 1 degree, but at least the sun is shining.
It is school holidays here in Tasmania so my house looks like a bomb site, sounds like an amusement parlour and my cupboards and fridge are bare, but there is an upside to all this, they are actually letting me knit!!! The little darlings :)
