Yes you heard right, skulls. I never thought that I would knit anything with skulls but here they are adorning a pair of fingerless gloves. Suzi will be so proud of me!
September seems black, well in my knitting anyway. The poncho is finished and ready to make its way to Hamburg in Germany, how cool is that. As a Beatles fan Hamburg is a well known town in their musical history.
Made from Bendigo Mystique 16 ply which is wool, mohair and alpaca and oh so soft and lovely but because it is a 16 ply it has plenty of body to it. I enjoyed knitting it so much that I might just make another to add to my shop.
A big week this week, I turned another year older on Monday and the weather was grey and of course it rained. Summed up my mood really, not so much about turning 41 but the fact that my footy team got absolutely annihilated on the weekend in a preliminary final. We were one game away from a spot in this Saturdays grand final, oh well for this weekend only GO THE CATS!!
The Bendigo Neon has arrived and so I am working on a pattern to use with this great wool. It is by no means soft, it is almost a bit scratchy but I have been swatching with it and it knits up well.
Oh well till next time, happy knitting.
