Aussie Swing Tanzanite

Hi everyone

I've just noticed that I forgot to share one of my favourite Aussie Swings

A request from DH's work colleague
She chose the yarn colour and the pattern

Yarn - Bendigo Woollen Mills Stellar, Colour Tanzanite
Pattern - Aussie Swing (available on Ravelry & Etsy)

Love the colour and the sheen of this yarn (not quite showing in the photo)
It has a lovely drape
And will be warm and snuggly for the cooler weather

Have a great weekend

Me, Me, Me

This time the knitting was just for Me!!!!
Did take me a while.  Not because the pattern was difficult.  
But more that quick baby knits kept interfering :-)

Pattern is Emiliana
Yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4ply (Koala) & House of Wool Fingering

I love, love, love it
Can't wait to wear it as a shawl or scarf now the weather has finally started to cool a little

Have a great day

My apologies

To the very lovely ladies that leave comments on my blog - Dorothy & Maria in particular.

I have just spent the last half an hour going round in circles trying to reply to your comments.  Particularly where a question was asked.
I have gotten absolutely nowhere
Sorry :-(

Dorothy - the Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton washes & wears very well. 
I have been using it for about 4 years for my grandchildren - cardigans, blankets etc.
It can even be washed on a gently cycle in the machine.
My grandchildren have not been 'hard' on the garments, so not too sure how it would withstand hard rough & tumble wear

Have a great day
