This blog is primarily about knitting,but as I do a bit of home sewing and the occasional crochet,I will be posting about these projects, as well. I am busygirl on Knitter's Review and my Ravelry username is purlyknitter.
I blocked this cowl this afternoon and it's now drying on a towel in my craft room. After I'd finished my ribbed sweater a couple of months ago, I had a small amount of the yarn left and as it was not enough for a pair of socks,I used it to knit a pretty cowl in feather and fan, one of my favourite stitch patterns.
I am in my fifties,married and the mother of two grownup sons - I was born in South Africa, but my husband, younger son and I lived in New Zealand since 2002 and in August 2011 relocated to Australia.We spent just under two years living in Australia(in Geelong, Victoria),but were not very happy there and have now returned to Auckland, New Zealand. We are so pleased to be back and plan to live here for the rest of our lives.
I do the occasional bit of home sewing and some crochet from time to time, but knitting is my favourite craft,so I always have a project or two on my needles.I love reading and listening to audiobooks, listening to music and watching movies.
