Knitting

A little while before the Sydney quilt show, a friend bought me this pattern book - so many lovely designs.  I decided to knit No 10 for Peta for her birthday and stocked up on wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills at the quilt show.  Jenni told me recently that Peta loves pom-poms so I decided to add a couple to the ribbon tie.

Design No 10, Cleckheaton Book 950, Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply, colour Ghost
The quilting on the Sweet quilt is finished and the binding has been sewn on - I'm taking my time stitching it down at night while watching tv - it's a big quilt.

Sweet - based on Cluck Cluck Sew's "Double Hourglass" tutorial
I've also been cutting and gluing more pies and tarts segments - that seems to be never-ending but is a good tv-watching job.

Lovely winter's afternoon - the sun is out.

That cardi is lovely. I think thats the same colour I just bought for Mum to make me a scarf. Very pretty. Love the pom pom idea.

I love Peta's bolaro (spelling???), a beautiful colour and superb knitting! The pom-poms make a lovely addition.
Sweet is just stunning, so gorgeous....
