2011 - Item 3

Pattern: Cabled Keyhole Scarf by Anne Hanson
Yarn: Purla yarn from Kmart, 1 ball
Needles: 4.5mm
This only took 2 days for me to knit and I really love the way it turned out. I knit this for my sister's birthday, which is tomorrow Happy Birthday Narelle! I do hope that she likes it. The Purla yarn is so soft to knit with too and they have some nice colors.
I am hoping that the weather cools down very soon too as it is a bit hard trying to knit in the heat. It seems with this hot wind our evaporative cooler doesnt wish to send cool air inside the house, only warm air which gives me a headache. Fingers crossed it will begin to cool down soon so more knitting may happen. Paul is away at Tylden fishing with his workmate that we visited the other day so it should be a nice quiet night in for the kids and I!

Happy birthday Narelle from me too!
I love your new scarf. Looks like you might get to wear it next week when it cools down a bit.
Sue, I love the wool you bought in Kynton. I've been thinking about visiting that shop for ages. Maybe I will sooner now.

Oh so pretty! I have been eyeing that pattern ever since it came out. I have way too much work knitting right now to do any "me" knitting.

It's freezing here!
