Hello and welcome too my new blog where I'll share with you my Yarn Journey.
I've been a knitter since the age of 8yrs old, I worked as a Professional knitter making Aran Jumpers for Japanese Tourist for a Giftware shop in a Winery in NSW not far from where we living at the time with 2 small children.
Each winter of course my kids had new jumpers, we moved from Sydney too Port Macquarie on the NSW mid north coast Xmas 1990. I knitted on and off but we found the winters not as cold as in Sydney and the kids were older and preferred too wear Track tops, early 1997 I was introduced too Patchwork, a craft that I've loved for many years but was happy knitting.
we moved too the Gold Coast late 2001, my obsession with patchwork grew and the needles were packed away.
over the last 2-3 winters I've really felt like knitting again and it wasn't till this winter I decided too take a step back with my patchwork and pick up the needles again, I've been on Instagram for awhile and then I found Podcast, knitting podcast which I was listening too late at night after work while stitching, well it wasn't long and I soon discovered Hand Dyed Yarns, so the yarn journey began, I re-joined Ravelry stocked up my yarn stash and the knitting hasn't stopped..

Baby Knitting.

With the news of our Son Gavin and DIL Sam who are living in London are expecting their first baby in December I was pleased too be able too get back too baby wear, so I searched the patterns on Ravelry these are what I have finished so far, they are yet too have buttons before they go into the Baby Bag for our trip on Boxing Day.  These are all still WIP I'll post them again once I get the details finished on them, but they have been washed and blocked.

"Puerperium" cardigan by Pekapeka Designs Studio free pattern on Ravelry by Kelly Brooker.

This was a quick knit from the top down, first time I've knitted in this format and I loved it, I have used Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in "Ghost".

  1. What a gorgeous bundle of hand knits! There will be one toasty warm baby in the depths of a Wintery London when you get there.
