Dishcloths Galore

I am starting to get dishcloths galore! I have decided to include dishcloths / washcloths in a number of Christmas presents this year. The ones that need to be posted to Melbourne are finished, which is a relief. They can be posted on Monday. In the photo at the top you can see the five… Continue reading Dishcloths Galore

Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions

Hokitika Set Is Finished

My Hokitika set is finished! Actually, I finished it on Saturday but have only got around to taking photos this afternoon (Monday). I am really pleased with how it has all turned out, but the mittens followed the same construction path as the hat. The pattern I used for the fingerless mittens was a plain… Continue reading Hokitika Set Is Finished

So – There Was A Wool Sale …

Last month (August) was the tenth anniversary of a knitting event called “KAN”, or Knit August Nights. SKEINZ had a wool sale, as they usually do, to help celebrate. It was very tempting but I managed to hold off until the very last week of it. They had some lovely yarns and some very good… Continue reading So – There Was A Wool Sale …

Finished Just In Time!

I’ve finished the little pink baby set, and I literally finished just in time. It turned out that my sister was down for the weekend and I asked her if she could take the set back with her. I finished putting on the last button five minutes before she arrived to pick it up! Fortunately… Continue reading Finished Just In Time!

Moving Forward

It may not be full steam ahead, but I am moving forward. In January 2018 I published the post “Changes Afoot”. I wrote this after changing to WordPress as my hosting provider. The change was actually made in December 2017, so it is not too far off two years ago. When I changed over I… Continue reading Moving Forward

In The Pink Again

It’s been a while but I’m knitting pink baby clothes again. My niece’s new daughter is over two weeks old already, having been born over three weeks early, but I’m hoping to get a few things knitted quickly enough that she won’t out grow them too soon. I’ve chosen a set from a book I’ve… Continue reading In The Pink Again

On Its Way! (Finally Finished)

I finally finished the navy jacket (see “Almost Done!”) and got it posted off today. It should have been sent by Monday (yesterday) so I sent it courier post to make sure it gets there in time. I would hate it to be late for my grandson’s birthday. This pattern seems to be good at… Continue reading On Its Way! (Finally Finished)

Almost Done!

I thought I’d better give you a quick update on the navy jacket I’m pushing to finish for my grandson's birthday. I had hoped to get it finished last weekend, but lost a couple of evenings to meetings last week. The main knitting is almost done, which will leave the bands and joining together to… Continue reading Almost Done!

Finished In Plenty Of Time

It’s finished! I’m happy to report that the cowl has been finished in plenty of time for me to post it overseas. I’ve just wrapped it and packaged it up with a card so that it can be sent tomorrow. This has been quite a relaxing and straight forward pattern to knit. The only “whoopsie”… Continue reading Finished In Plenty Of Time
