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..

Two Colour Fairisle
Two Colour Boxy Jumper.
Fairisle Boxy Jumper.
Well I did Frog that Grey jumper and now I've used it on another competely different style, I pulled out my Old Jo Sharp Knitting Books and found a Largish Boxy type jumper, it has Fairisle all accross the top and on the sleeves, Nah not doing that! Famous last words she says, I've added my New Fav Colour again too the bottom band, I'm following the basic pattern, I came up too the Fairisle and decided too have another go after Many Many Years...I've even taught myself too knit with the 2 colours one in the left hand and the other in the right, Love all these New techniques I'm finding....

I'm using circular needles that's why its showing up with a curl, so far so good...I won't be doing the fairisle on the back or sleeves...too be Cont:
