2012 - FO 2


I have finally finished another project, which incidentally I just cast on on the 14th of March.  Yes I know I said I should not be casting on anymore projects but after going to Spotlight and finding a beautiful yarn that changed colors I thought I should.  I just love all the beautiful colors in this scarf/wrap.  I am going to gift it to my sister so I do hope she will like it.

Pattern:  Spectra by Stephen West
Yarns:    Panda Magnum Soft 8 ply (color - black) 2.5 balls
              Bouvardia from Spotlight, Dye Lot 2, Color 104-15
Started:  14th March and finished 22nd March 2012

This is such an easy pattern and very addictive.  I didnt quite knit up the 86 wedges as I ran out of the Bouvardia yarn but I think I managed to knit up about 78 wedges out of 1 ball.  I really do adore those colors, just so pretty like a bright rainbow!

Next up are some more baby knits as my hairdresser and personal friend just had 2 grandbabies born in January and March so I get to knit a little girl and a little boy knit.  I have so many patterns that I just cannot decide but I am sure I will by the end of the week!

Oh and next Thursday my knitting group are travelling up to Bendigo Woollen Mills for a nice day out and to buy some yarn.  I am hoping the back room has nice wool that I can bring home, although Paul did mention the fact that they could come to our garage and shop from my stash, the cheeky bugger!

See you all soon.

sue, i LOVE your wrap, it is gorgeous. (truly!!) The colours are lovely.
Have fun at Bendigo, I am wanting to go and have a look up there too. One day maybe. By the way, my hubby is very cheeky about my stash too, recently telling me he would not make me more shelves and I was to get rid of stuff; the horror of it!!!

The scarf/wrap is very pretty. How nice to be close enough to go to Bendigo for the day.
