The House of Wool

Yesterday at the Knitter's Guild down in Blaxland, I did a workshop with Claire on lace blocking which was interesting and I got a lot out of it. Afterwards I drove back up the mountains to Blackheath to The House of Wool for a knitting evening from 5 to 7pm. I'm trying to get as much knitting done before the baby arrives. I have nearly finished a vest and a cardigan. It gets cold up here so the little one will need a few woollies to keep warm.

It was so lovely sitting on the comfy lounge, knitting without my kids trying to climb over and distract me.

And spoiled with tea and yummy chocolate slices, the lovely company of the ladies who where there, and surrounded by all this beautiful wool :)

Hopefully it will be a regular event I can get too.

Here is some more wool for my stash that came home with me. It's fine Merino cashmere from Lara Downs. I bought from The House of Wool. I love these colours.
