Crochet op shop finds

Spotted these gorgeous knee rugs/ blankets at Vinnies in Glenroy this week; they look brand new, priced around $10 each. I LOVE the fluoro brights with the black border! Like a giant liquorice allsort!

Mitts in May

I needed a small, quick project after finishing the last blanket, so since the weather has been a bit cooler, I decided to knit some mitts.
I had a pattern in a knitting book (which I mainly liked for the colours used!) I found a similar colour flecked grey at Lincraft.
When I knitted up the pattern, it was waaayy too big, so I frogged the whole thing and started again. These fit much better! I had to use youtube to figure out how to do the picot bind off- which I love the look of! - but will have to try blocking it again to make it sit flat.

And yet another blanket!

I finished another blanket - my first for the year! It is probably about single bed sized, I basically kept knitting until I ran out of yarn!

Now I need to get cracking on the next one, but after the blast of winter last week, I really need some new arm warmers. And I keep looking at shawl patterns, and the ball of wool and pattern for the " little dragon shawl" I bought from the brilliant craft store in Lakes Entrance last year...not to mention all the Outlander knitting patterns I have been looking at...and I always wanted to make a proper Tom Baker Dr Who scarf....!!!!
