Here are some flowers to brighten your day during the Covid 19 lockdown. They are Alstroemerias (Peruvian Lilies) from our garden. We have about six different colours in flower at the moment. Not all are tall enough for putting in vases. We love having fresh flowers in the house. These are in the kitchen, so we see them all the time. We once had beautiful roses but ring-tail possums ate all the new shoots. All they left were the thick main stems. Another favourite for vases are colourful Coleus leaves.
Ferg continues developing his Yarn Boxes . (We no longer have a garage, we have a woodworking factory.) His latest version uses mitred corners with splines. I think he has settled on this design for future production. However we still have some of the previous versions for sale. Both the large Bendigo Box and the smaller Midi Box are selling well.
I continue designing and knitting baby blankets. The third one is called Popcorn. We have it as a digital download and also as a kit. The kit contains the pattern ( four A4 pages), the main colour (cream) and fourteen popcorn colours as well as a matching Project Bag. There is also a Video Tutorial that demonstrates all you need to know about knitting and finishing this charming baby blanket.
Usually when we exhibit at craft shows we sell a few completed blankets. With the lack of live craft shows, I have developed a space problem. I keep knitting blankets, but the cupboards don't keep growing. Consequently I am putting more completed blankets into our online shop. Sometimes it is hard to say goodbye to favourite blankets. But I will be strong! All blankets are hand knitted in pure wool . As all crafters know, when selling hand made items, one does not get paid for the time expended. However I have been fully compensated by the pleasure I have had designing and knitting them. The blankets have been priced to sell.
I am selling three CABLE Blankets and four versions of TESSELLATIONS.
I hope they will all find a good home.
