Tweety is a pied budgerigar for those who don't live in Aussie land.
He's about 4 1/2 years old now.
This pair of socks are knit from Opal Petticoat (colour eludes me at the moment).
I was asked to knit these for a friend and it only took me about 4 days to knit them.
This jumper is knit from a wool/acrylic blended yarn.
The main yarn came from the old Coats Patons wool mills which haven't been operating in Launceston for quite a few years now.
The pattern is from a book that I picked up from the op shop.
The book is "Knit me a rainbow" and was put out by the Family Circle magazine quite a few years ago.
There are a lot of jumpers that I would like to make from this book.
The purply jumper with intarsia a few months back on June 20th was also knit from this book.
This is a little jacket that Katt and I have made between us.
Katt did the knitting and sewing up and I did the crochet on this lovely little jacket.
Katt now has the job of putting the buttons on it. (They may already be on it as she has had it in her hot little hands since Tuesday).
Since finishing this gear I have also finished but not taken pickies yet of a 4 ply scarf that I have had on the go for quite a while as my mindless take along project, a baby jumper that has been languishing in the bottom of my knitting bag for a few months and also a beanie that I started and finished today.
I will have to rake pickies of these finished articles and post them.
I am verrrrrrrrrrry pleased with myself as I have finished 3 of my UFO's that have been sitting around for a while. Woohoo.
Lately I have been given a large garbage bag FULL of yarn and a heap of it is in jumper lots (aren't I lucky) and I have also mumble mumble (bought a few packets of Patons Feathersoft yarn as well.
This is absolutely beautiful yarn and as the name suggests it is sooooooooooo soft.
Miss 4 picked out 1 packet of the yarn in mauve to knit her a jumper so I just couldn't resist ( who could say no when a 4 yr old wants you to buy yarn to knit for them). I then went back a few days later and bought another packet in a lovely yellow colour called banana.
Yet again I think it is time for me to go to bed.
Why is it that I am always at the computer blogging late at night?
Until next time keep on knitting.
