There's no doubt about it, I really enjoy knitting these little patches into a blanket. So here I go again. At the request of the welfare group I'm knitting for, it is acrylic - easier to wash for mothers in situations where facilities don't lend themselves to handwashing wool. As usual I'm picking up the stitches of the previous patches, which I find easier than sewing up. The other WIP will be leg-warmers for our oldest daughter who likes to wear purple. These are being made from a cone of one-ply wool that I bought at the op-shop (love the op-shop) I'm using seven strand together to achieve the tension required in the pattern and and a collection of needles to form a tube. It's taking ages; I'm slow at 1 x 1 rib. The rellies from Canada are due to leave on Monday, heading for Queensland where it will be a little warmer than we've had it down here. Life will feel a little slower without them. We have really covered some ground with them over the past few weeks. Lovely gentle autumn weather here today. Hope it's a good day wherever you are. Bye for now until next time.
