This is Shazzas version of the Bead and Opal Wool Queens ponytail beanie. Made from Bendigo Colonial in a lovely shade called woodrose and a cream coloured knitted flower added for interest.
I have also been kept busy with requests for fingerless gloves, this pair in practical black for men, I used Bendigo colonial 8ply. The pattern is a no frills traditional one that I have used for years from an old socks and gloves book which I have adapted over the years. I am currently working on another pair made from Bendigo Rustic in midnight tweed.
I have also joined in all the fun of Ravelry, I am currently getting my head around the whole site and one can only wonder how I am going to get the time to post there, lol! I was pleasantly surprised to find some of my patterns there already.
Just arrived back home from Coles Bay all relaxed and ready to tackle the busyness of life again. I have to confess that not a lot of knitting was done, I read books mostly and walked. Oh well till next time, happy knitting.
