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

Mummy's Choice

Sharing my latest project for GD1
D3 chose the colour and the pattern

Pattern is Granny's Favourite
Yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton 8ply in Wild Lavender.  Its a hard colour to capture correctly.  Sometimes it appears more bluish as in this photo

Love the pattern

GD1 cried when she saw it.  Not tears of happiness, but sadness :-)
It wasn't pink - hahaha
The cat buttons saved it for her
So another one will be made :-)

Have a great day
