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..

Yarn Swap with TrulyMyrtle.
TrulyMyrtle Tarn Swap Package
I'll be back too show you what I was given from my partner.
On the knitting I am nearly finished one of the socks that I started knitting two at a time, I made a Eye of the Partridge heel flap, my first time with that pattern, I liked it it gives the heel a little more strength, plus I'm knitting them on a 2.5mm needle which is giving the sock a much thicker feel which is what I was after.
Vanilla Latte Mans Sock.
Thanks for stopping by
