I forgot to post in the previous blog that I went to see Kitty Flanagan at the Regal Theatre in Subiaco. It was very funny and I am glad I went along on a Thursday night after work. It was pretty much sold out and I was near the back, but the theatre isn't that big so I could still see ok. I never knew that she could do so many different impressions. I would go again.
I finished this cardigan in a 9 month size from the Patons #1271, Modern classic baby knits. I think I prefer the older construction of knitting. A lot of patterns in these days focus on the 'no seams' as people seem to be put off by the sewing. I agree that it always takes longer than I think it should but I like how it seems to make them sit that bit better. I especially like this button band which I sewed on as I went so I wouldn't make it too short/long. I posted it to my mum to pass on to a friend of her's as it should fit her granddaughter.
I finally finished this Cardigan for mum. I think it is quite heavy with the wool and I am not sure how it will wash, but it looks pretty at the moment. It took a while to line up the strips as you see them. I think I did ok.
I made this last summer? I think. I took it to Melbourne last weekend as I thought that it might fit Evie. Here she is all grown up. It's still a little loose but otherwise it fits well. Got some good feedback for future projects. I always like feedback.
It happened to rain while we were waiting to catch the train on the second day. I put on my temporary tattoo's to show my support for the All Blacks in the world cup.
A small ring-tail possum treated us with an appearance while we were having a bbq at Reece's parent's place. It's very cute. I am sorry about the picture quality. It was dark and I only had my phone on me. It kinda looks like a giant rat here, but I promise it was a very cute small possum.
