Check out my beautiful blue geranium "Johnson Blue". Yes, it is infact a geranium as opposed to a pelargonium. I've been learning about the difference between the two in the lastest "Your Garden" magazine.
/madlis-shawl in purple alpaca and I've started /watershed cardi in the Cascade worsted in Celtic Green.I've almost run out of yarn for the Madli and I've decided not to do the last two repeats just in case I run out before the end! The Watershed pattern is a bit tricky, starting with a provisional figure 8 cast on and a few tricky bits in the lace lower edging, but I'm enjoying knitting in a thicker yarn for a change!
OMG. Spinning is way harder than it looks! I've tried to spin some brown yarn. It looks pretty terrible. I'm hoping the Spinners & Weavers may have a course for beginners early this year. I've been checking out you-tube, but I think I just need a bit more practice getting a good rhythm with the wheel! I also bought some pink merino fibres from www.tasmanianfibre.com.au/index.html to spin. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it and then I can actually spin wool good enough to knit a pair of pink socks with!
Anyway, that's about all that's happening in my knitting and gardening world at the moment! I've been reading lots of blogs with people making many 2012 resolutions and plans. My plans involve more knitting and crochet as well as more gardening of course! Thank-you to all of you who visit my blog! I hope you continue to in 2012! Happy New Year!:-)
