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..

Sock knitting gets better.

My second fingering weight yarn Socks on the needles, I started doing two at a time but my circulars are too short, so I seperated them, now up to the heel flap, I'm pretty pleased with this heel, the pattern is a Eye of the partridge, from the Vanilla Latte Sock pattern found on Ravelry, no gaps.
Vanilla Latte Socks in Green.
Knit Picks fingering, Rainforest Heather, a lovely emerald green with Brown tweed effect, this is lovely yarn too knit with, 2.5mm circular needles. For the Xmas Box Thanks for stopping by Happy Knitting Maree
