It has been some time since the last post. Fortunately, the house hasn't been sold yet, and I've been able to enjoy some knitting time. It is such a tactile craft, simple in it's requirements - beautiful bamboo needles and soft luxurious wool - a wonderful combination.
The weather now is cool enough to wear the light green top pictured in the previous post. Children's knits have been a main item on the agenda for a few weeks. This little boy's style is handknitted from new season's luxury machine wash wool, from the Bendigo Mills in Victoria. A bold rib pattern worked on 5.50mm needles. The wool needs to knit to 12 ply for this size needle. Pattern repeats over 4 + 3 stitches and 2 rows. Very easy and gives a wonderful texture.
Pattern : Row 1 : K3 *P1,K3 rep.from* to end.
