Finally the sun

I have been knitting with the new wool that I bought at the craft show. I cast on three times and tried to find the best pattern to use. This is what I settled on, the Knotted Openwork Scarf by Wannietta Prescod (found on the internet of course).

I have nearly finished a shirt like the white on I made last year. I just need to work out how long I would like it and do the hem. The sleeves are long than the last one I made.

And I have finished an A line skirt. I live in these in summer. It's not the best photo, but its a stretch denim in a grey purple. It has lines through it and the camera didn't like that.

I bought the button when I was away at a fantastic shop in Berrima. I could spend a whole day in there looking at the buttons (in huge tubs), antique fabric, quilts, kitchen things, books, patterns and crockery galore! It really is amazing. I bought quite a few buttons and the knitting needles that I am knitting the scarf with (above).

We have been waiting all school holidays for the sun to come out and it has made an appearance on the last day. Back to school tomorrow.
