After spending over a week down the south coast on the beach feeling like we just had a week of Summer, we said goodbye to the sun and came back to the cold foggy mountains. Here I am in the middle of Summer knitting away, rugged up under my quilt with a jumper on!..... Crazy weather!....
Last Sunday I met up the lovely ladies from the Ravelry group, " UP The M4", that meet at the Red Cow pub at Penrith one Sunday a month to do knitting in the pub. I caught the train down the mountain with all my layers on, only to peel off like an onion once I got down there. It was lovely to meet other people off Ravelry. Most of the ladies there I have met at the Blue Mountains Knitters' Guild. Hopefully, I'll be back next month.
My first finished knitting of the year! I won't mention the other items that I have being frogging.
Katie took these pictures. She is such a great photographer. The photos are hazey because I live in a permanent fog up here. The camera even picked up the fog (LOL).
The Pattern is from a leaflet by Heirloom. I bought the pattern years ago and the wool is Naturally Mohair plus(?). The colour of the wool is brighter in real life. The wool looks a little washed out on the monitor. This wool has been in my stash for while now. I did start something with it but didn't like it. I got the wool in the bargin bin at the Katoomba Knitting and Needle Craft shop, picking up the last 3 balls. My goal this year is to finish the knitting projects that I have started and get through my stash. I'm running out of storage space....(LOL)
