How many weeks???

Catching up with pics from the last couple of weeks.  These are for Yarn Along...

 Knitting a cushion cover (brown/grey with cream stripes) and browsing these books from the library.

 Two blankets finished off from squares knitted by others.  Taken to Deloraine Neighbourhood House to be passed on to those in need of some warmth on these cold winter days.

 Browsing the latest Australian Country Style mag and knitting diagonal blanket squares from the wool I bought recently from Wirraworra/Bennett and Gregor.  8 ply yarn double, 6.5mm needles, starting with 3 stitches, increasing to 50, decreasing to 3.

 Diagonal knit cushion cover finished.  The two linen cushions I made from tea towels.  The two books I bought :).  They are really good ( Chic Boutiquers at Home and Design Bloggers at Home)

 Started another diagonal knit cushion cover in reverse colours (cream with brown/grey stripes), and reading the first book in the Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy.

How to have your cake and eat it too...
Made a banana and blackberry cake today...and ate a piece warm from the oven...before I went for my walk to work it off :))

Home is going...and I've settled in for the night!

Enjoy yours!!



  1. Lovely blankets and your cake looks delicious. Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

    1. Hi Linda!! Greetings back to you...from cold, wet, wintery Tasmania :)) xx

  2. I know I sound like a broken record - but your knitting is so PERFECT! I can only admire it, and hope. :)

    1. Thanks Lisa!! I've been doing it for a lot of years :))...and I keep to simple designs, so that helps :).

      Nice to see you joining in on Yarn along. I don't get there every week, but hope to get a post on there this week. xx
