More Yarn!

Did you know that Bendigo Woollen Mills is having a sale at the moment until the end of November!  Well I do and this is the second bag of about 5 balls of stuff that I am trying to squeeze into my plastic containers.  Somehow I dont think these will fit so they will have to be knit up very soon.  The gorgeous colors look fantastic together but I dont think I will be using them like that.  The pink/purple color is going to be used for Isabelle since she is favouring some other colors other than blue at the moment.  I think I might cast on another Tikki project and see how it turns out.  I have started her KAL projects too, Sorello (the girly one) and then because Tikki got ill I decided to knit up the Fratello one in a size 7 for my nephew for next year.  Now I just need to wait for clue 3 for both of them so I can knit some more.  I have also nearly finished one half of my knitted tea cozy for my mum.  I seem to get a lot of knitting done whilst listening to podcasts lately.  No tv to look at or kids to listen too, just listening to someone talking about knitting seems to send me into the knitting zone.  I have been listening to Alana from Never Not Knitting and I quite like her podcast song too, quite funny!  I am sure Paul could relate to that song somehow.  If you havent heard you can pop on over to her blog at nevernotknitting.blogspot.com and have a listen to one of her podcasts.  She also designs beautiful things too.  I am just waiting on her beret pattern to be released as it would make a great birthday present for my sister.  Okay I have rambled on enough today, off to do some more knitting!

The colours do look nice together but of course I fancy the green!! I received four balls of wool yesterday, it was a long 10 day wait though.

Ooh lovely wools. The pinky/purple would be the colour of choice round here. But all lovely.

Beautiful colours, but don't tell me there's a wool sale, I have no more room for anymore wool. Argghhh!!!

I must start on some tea cozies, as I've just told my local cafe that their teapots need cozies and they want me to show them some. Can you recommend a quick and easy pattern?

Cheers
