Inspired by church windows

I have finished a piece of knitting which was completed from a free pattern from the internet.

The pattern is from Knitty.com

The only downside was that I made the large version where I should have made the smaller version.  The upside is that I have enough wool left over to make the smaller version now.  A win/win situation.

My next project

On my return trip from Melbourne I stopped off in Yarragon.

It is the ideal place to stop on the way back as it is about half way, at least it seems half way.  There is a lovely shop there called Wardrobe in the Lane.  I always like to check it out as the lady has some beautiful items in the shop.  I bought a lovely top and resisted the temptation to buy a new jumper.

There is also a haberdashery/wool shop which has moved out of the lane and into the main street.  I popped in there as I can’t resist a wool shop particularly when there is a sale on. 🙂

I bought some wool and a pattern.  The wool/acrylic is a navy blue.  I usually buy pure wool so this is a step from the usual.  It will be interesting to see how it knits up.

It is really chunky yarn so it shouldn’t take too long to knit.

I have managed to get a bit mo……..

I have been missing in action recently so this post was started on 23rd March and it is now 21st April.  That is almost a month away from doing blog posts. The post I was going to do was about a cardigan I was knitting for my granddaughter. I mentioned this cardigan in a previous post.I have managed to get a bit more knitting done while the Cricket Test has been on in India. (The Test finished quite some time ago. )

I have completed the body of the cardigan and I am now onto the sleeves.(That has also progressed. )

Since starting this post the cardigan is now completed and my granddaughter has been wearing it.  Onto the next project.
