knitting

Hello everyone. Wanting to update my knitting projects on here, and gather some information!
I 've got crochet on the brain. This sweater got me back into the HOOK. It had been ages.
So long... that I cast on 11 stitches onto my crochet hook and then gazed at it strangely for several
long seconds in awe, asking my wee brain .. what do i do next ? .... before laughing at myself at what i'd done. :)  This is Angie , and is soon to be released. There will be a giveaway for this pattern here when it is.
I am planning on ripping out this collar and crocheting it over. I missed the pun on the reverse stitch , because of  Emmylou and Gram distracting me I do believe.
My greenish ochre cardigan has made great progress ! THis is a hip fun little open cardigan, i love how the garter rolls. Look at this Wollmeise green funk ! This is bluejean white teeshirt with red maryjanes kindof a sweater :) ---- and i say i'm not a planner , ha !
And little miss l i g h t n i n g ?
A perfect fit.
I've modified mine to become a squishy roomy pullover sweater.
It is my first ever jumper - and I LOVE this colourway.

I've just ordered several Doris Lessing novels from our local library .
I've read her 9 African Short Stories with awe.
This lady is in her 90s and still writing novels !

I've also ordered a wonderful book - Scandanavian Christmas Balls to Knit !
We fly in two days down to Perth for a week, to get passports and visas from
the Embassy - getting us all ready for our Great Migration ! :)))))))))
Happy thoughts to all out there ~!

  1. i love how you intertwine your creative endeavours with literature. i remember lessing having a similar effect on me, when i realized the woman is going strong. i haven't read anything by her though, for a too long time..
    the colour schemes on your projects are just so funky!
    tell me about the migration?

  5. I agree - that Madelintosh yarn, Thunderstorm, is divine! Can you please let me know, or give a reply here, which online seller you used to ship your Madelinetosh here to WA? Thanks so much.
