Hi Fellow Knitters,
Happy New Year to all, and may all your craft projects in 2023 bring you and the recipient much pleasure.
Ferg and I are home from holidays. First we were at North Avoca NSW for Christmas week, home for a while, then to Valla Beach for a week.
On Australia Day Ferg, George (maker of Rotating Yarn Butlers) and I, lunched at the seafood restaurant Anchors Wharf Cafe, Urunga, NSW. We enjoyed seeing groups of families and friends gathered together along the banks of the Kalang River. The river was alive with all sorts of water craft plus a few dolphins.
Between North Avoca and Valla Beach, I finished the Almost Log Cabin Blanket. I joined the blocks with a dark grey using the three needle join-up method, then knitted the border also in the dark grey. The photo shows the blanket on the single bed at the Valla Beach house. This room contains this bed with a trundle bed underneath as well as bunk beds - a room for cousins to share. I am super pleased with this blanket.
It is pleasant to remember all the knitted items, made over many years, that produced all this left-over yarn. Almost as good a a photo album.
