The knit-along turned into a SEX with side visits to Stitchery Blue (once Sam and I finally found it) and a little fabric store that Georgie worded me up on.
This Tyrol is destined to become a nice, cosy scarf for me. It is a ways down the TTD list but the holidays do start for me next Friday...
I am not sure which of these fabrics are destined for the store and which might end up as skirts for me. If my regular readers see anything that especially piques their interest please drop me an email and we will talk. ;)
Now for my other bits and pieces. I have finished my bolero! Here it is on the floor and dodgily modelled by me to prove that it actually fits! Excuse the multiple chins, bleary eyes and dopey look. It was so close to finished Thursday night that I stayed up to finish it off. It could still do with a good blocking but I am fairly happy with it.
If you got this far. thanks for reading my mad rantings! Have a great week.

Next are the longies that I have finished for Rohan. Now I just need some cooler weather to come before he toilet trains! There have been a few wees on the potty but honestly I think they were mostly fluke. He certainly isn't aware of any need to pee just yet.
Then, thanks to Sam for telling me that there was a wool sale on at Kmart there is the pile of uncommitted wool that I bought yesterday. I have no idea what any of it will become but it was so nice and so cheap...
Whilst at Kmart I also grabbed these Bonds items that I intend to applique sometime in the near future. In my mind the purple pants have flowers all up on leg and the blue pants have ships on them but we will see what takes me when I sit at the machine.
Lastly, my progress on the bolero top for me...
Oh..and if you are interested there are pictures of the last semi-custom that I made (would you believe that I forgot to take any) up on Nappycino. I am so pleased that it's new owner loved it enough to publish photos of it. It was quite humbling to be honest.

Given that I am going to be home most of the weekend with Rohan sleeping and the fact that it easier to have three at home than three out and about, I thought I might as well offer a semi-custom knitting bag for someone. For a change I have decided to auction it, ending tomorrow arvo.
I also got some great new fabrics at Spotlight today. This one is currently half a knitting bag and should be finished tomorrow. I might have bought the fabric and forgotten to buy more thread.....
I have also just about finished Rohan's longies, just a few rows to go on the last cuff and ends to sew in. The next knitting project is going to be this little bolero top for me. I am going to try it in NZ Utiku berry colourway and see how that goes.
