Living the life and praising God on a dairy farm in Northern Victoria PLUS quilting, knitting, church stuff and of course stuff about family (especially my granddaughters Mia and Maddison)

a couple of wooly finishes
Managed to get a couple of "ufo's" (unfinished objects) off my list. Firstly I finished the second sock of a test knit that I had been doing - I was distracted by working on another pair of socks (as you do) after finishing the first sock. Im sure all you sock knitters can relate to that. Interesting pattern and a great way the heel is done as you dont have to pick up any stitches.
Secondly is my granny stripes blanket that I have been crocheting. Really enjoyed it - the bendigo woolen mills cotton is great to work with and I do think the colours look great together. Mind you I did buy way too much yarn so have enough yarn left over to make a second crocheted rug - think I might try a ripple blanket next time - stay tuned!
