I've decided to share images / photos that I have collected over the years here.
The posts will be random with no chronological link, just as I think about them, they will be posted

What do you do when the temps have been very high????
And the humidity even higher????
Why, of course you design a Neckwarmer - 😁

I've recently been seeing a few items that have captured my interest lately.
Fair Isle / Stranded knitting
I have tried it before, but at that time I did not understand the skill level involved in such beautiful work. My projects turned out well and had a fair amount of wear. Sorry, but no photos to show that skill.
But I thought I would start again - as a beginner and actually try knitting the colours with two hands. One doing my normal 'throw' method and the other using 'continental' style.
Now normally I cannot do continental, but for some reason I find it relatively relaxing when using two yarns - go figure
So here are some of my latest creations - be kind please, still learning
This one I am not parting with.
It fits and actually suits me when wearing it.
Hats & me don't usually go together.
So this one is a keeper
And those sheep - love
Pandamonium - more challenging for me than Baa-ble. Forgive the wonky eye
And this one I adapted from the book "Aussie Fair" - Poss
Most of these will be off to one of this months Knit4Charities charities.
It's been a great stash-busting exercise and I think will continue for a while.
So many lovely patterns and ideas are out there
Have a wonderful week

Here is the my latest finished baby outfit
I did adapt it, as it was turning out way to big for my needs - NB-3mths
But I love, love, love the way it turned out
Yarn - Bendigo Woollen Mills Wool/Cotton 4ply (found in the back room) - wish this was available in their online store :-(
Details can be found here
And this is the original pattern
Much larger, lace is on the yoke too
Btw - the pattern is top-down :-)
Have a wonderful weekend :-)
