Desert Pea Pattern


Ive just uploaded a new pattern to Ravelry & Etsy
You may notice the link on the sidebar

I hope some of you like it and wish to try it
Its fairly simple, with just one lace row

The name I chose for it was the colour of the yarn of the first sample - 
Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Luxury called Desert Pea.  
Sadly the colour is discontinued.
But I love the second one I made in Ruby :-)
So expect to see lots popping up here ;-)

Baby Girl or Boy?

A new grandchild will be born in September.
But what its sex is no-one knows - except Mummy & Daddy
So I'm hedging my bets and knitting for both

A Girl Set - made from Bendigo Luxury 4ply
A beautiful new, free pattern from a Taswegian :-)

A Boy Set

And since I have plenty of time and a "little" of this wool in my stash ;-)
I listed them in my Madeit shop, Made For Little Ones (link in sidebar)

Have a great weekend

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
