completed....

what a quick knit...a gift completed....
however i think miss s has spied it, and we are off on holidays in a few days...i bet it goes into her suite case...
i dont mind, it was such a quick knit i have time to make another for the alpaca breeder, and probably enough wool....
short, cropped just at the waistline...intentionally no closures so it can be worn through the summer months...but i did find this pin in the new jo sharp store in cottesloe a few months back, and will put it to good use...
(have you west aussies been into the new 'knit' store? gorgeous, huge range, great bargain bin, and a completed sample of all of the patterns from her books...it's worth a visit...and the lady behind the counter has sooooo much knitting knowledge, she is a fantastic source of knitting info...thanks barbara)
having uploaded the photos, i think this needs blocking..i never seem to do that, too impatient....
bring on the holiday...melbourne town here we come...yippee

That cardigan is lovely in that beautiful yarn. And that pin is such a fine detail.

Bendigo Woollen Mills make such lovely yarns, so much yarn, so little time...........
You may need the cardi in Melbourne, and gumboots,and floaties, and sunscreen. You NEVER know.
