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..

Podcasting and a New Cast On.
New Grey Jumper on my needles
Do you watch Video Podcast, I do and I love them, I do have my Favourites, they are mostly Knitting and Fibre related, you can follow them on YouTube. Here are Mother & Daughter Chelsea & Sue from LegacyKnitz also on Instagram.
I've decided too give up on my Grey Jumper Roquaine from the latest Pom Pom Magazine, of all the years I've been knitting I don't remember having so much trouble with the pattern....so I frogged it and I'm following a bulky loose basic jumper pattern from an Older Jo Sharp pattern book, Knitting Bohemia, I'm adding my own pattern and the reason this will be my Mission is our London Kids want too spend a week in Edinburgh when we go over at Xmas, well it will be Chilly!! So a knitted jumper is in order and I do love this Grey....
