We're hosting a KAL! We are collaborating with @tarndie and @brionyknits to launch Briony's gorgeous new Shawl pattern "Patience". Inspired by the beautiful and evocative story of Tarndie - it's history and it's yarn - Patience is a crescent shaped Shawl knitted in Tarndie's 4ply/fingering weight yarn. We have pattern and yarn discounts and prizes too!! All info available in our Ravelry group.

Hoping in Melbourne's warmth today it will dry!!

Amulet Shawl from the #shawlsociety by @curioushandmade finally made it to the head of the blocking queue. Love the yarn, Dappled Pony colour by @missclickclack, love the pattern but not sure I love them together. Mmmm ... sometimes you make your choices and just keep on going because you love the process!! #knitting #knittingshawls #knittersofinstagram #missclickclack #knittedshawls #woolgathering2017

Out and about Pokémon hunting with Mr 10 and tripped over the Greek festival in our local park. Mmmm .... I do believe lunch will be yummy!!

My 'other' self!! Very excited to share and sooo looking forward to the event. #Repost @woolgatheringaustralia with @repostapp

The spectacular roof on the new extension at Chadstone Shopping Centre. 2,700 unique glass panels, a free spanning gridshell weighing 500 tonnes. Impressive modern architecture.

Sewing finished and now I have two new project bags. Not so keen on the pink ribbon but I was determined to only use what the stash could provide!! #sewing #fabricbag #projectbag

Blowing the cobwebs off the sewing machine for some Saturday afternoon sewing. 😀😀😀

Is it just too weird to say that I love the sight of sheets hanging on the line in the sun and blowing in the breeze?!?!?!?

Enjoying sitting outside in the fresh, albeit slightly cool, air with tea and knitting.

I am thrilled to be organising a wool crafts retreat in rural Victoria for yarn enthusiasts. You can follow along and share in the anticipation @woolgatheringaustralia #Repost with @repostapp
Welcome to Wool Gathering - a wool crafts retreat being held at the beautiful @tarndie in serene countryside in Victoria, Australia in May 2017. It promises to be four days of friendship, community, learning, laughter and yummy food. Great classes with wonderfully knowledgable teachers. There will be plenty of time to relax with yarn in hand and the added bonus of walking in the paddocks with the sheep as we learn about fleece. Full details can be found on the website - link in bio.
