Katie and I went to the Blue Mountians Knitter's Guild on Saturday afternoon. We had a great time even thought it was pouring down rain all afternoon. I met up with a friend from play group who told me about the knitting guild last year at play group. She helped me finish my scarf by sewing up the loose ends. I also met Kate from Blue Mountians Knits whose was the first knitting blog I stumbled over a month ago when I was googling the Blue Mountians Knitter's Guild.
Hopefully I'll be back next month, but with small kids I'll have to see what happens.

So I thought I'd make her a horse - a girly pink one with a rainbow mane (I love rainbows). I enjoy making felt toys. I had a lot of fun last year making felt toys for Katie's school fare. I went to Katoomba Knitting & Needlecraft Shop and got some pink felt & purple felt.I was drawn to the bargain basket where there was this pinkish mohair looking up at me. I was realy drawn to the colour - looking harder at the ball, it has a blueish purple through it as well (Its Naturally Mohair plus, shade 27) . I thought, poncho. It was $6 a ball there were 3 left. But I still have a cardie to finish first. So I got it any way. I can start a list of things to knit.

I'm still working on the back of my cardie. Its a slow process with a teething 7 month old and I can't seem to tear myself away from the computer (knitting blog sites) much to my partner's disgust with my new found hobby. He has become a blog widower. ;)
