Gotta love a good post day

Firstly I recieved that 100purewool I ordered a few weeks ago. I love the June colourway. I have no idea what I will do with any of it, but I am sure something will come to me.

I also recieved my yarn swap and small things swap items from the Woolaholics swaps that I took part in.

Nearly finished

I know that technically it is Kosher to keep swap items a secret but I so like this that I have to show it off. Apart from a fabric lining it is finished. Hopefully the lining will go in on the weekend and it can wing off to its new owner. The yarn in Dyelicious 12 ply, Wizard colourway and the pattern is a variation of Mon Cheri.

Hopefully my swapee likes it.

Ms Marigold is finished!

Hooray! Well hooray for Sam mostly who finished the ruffles and also did the neck ribbing as "she was bored" while she had it at her house. It is just so cute and I love the girly ruffles.

It is such a fun piece that it just called for a very silly photo....

Do what you do do well...

I finished this little bag off on the weekend - my first in such a long time. I so enjoyed making it. The fabric is just divine and I love the way the red plays off the butterflies. It makes me doubly happy that I didn't go with an obvious pink. Hopefully its new owner has it by now and is loving it as much as I did. Yet another one I very nearly kept.

Ms. Marigold is growing nicely.

It must feel spring in the air...

I have about an inch to go before the ribbing and then the finishing. I am happy with how it is coming together. The Jo Sharp DK is knitting up very nicely - a great purchase at $19 for 500g!!!
