I'm so proud

To show you a picture of Judith Connors with her Order of Australia Medal which she received on Tuesday from the Governor. 
Well deserved, Judith - tat on.

Thanks, Ruth, for the photo.  Much appreciated.

More fingers

There’s something about knitting gloves that is so satisfying - particularly doing them from the fingers down to the cuffs.  

Not sure why that’s so but it might be just ‘me’ who enjoys this challenge.  

Can you see the markers on these fingers?  Joanie gave me those when I last stayed with her in Florida.  They’re so, so useful.  I’ve noted which colour represents which finger in my notes app so that I can keep my BC3 happy!  

These gloves need dpn’s (double pointed needles) and TWO circular needles of the same size.  Well you don’t really need the circular ones but I found it so much easier  to use those for the part below the fingers/thumb when I last knitted gloves using this pattern.

So, onwards and upwards!!!

Hitting the doldrums

I may be a bit quiet this week.  
Now stop cheering all those reading this post!!!  
The fact is that I’ve got many things in the pipeline that I can’t share with you as they’re not ready and are waiting for Covid to sort itself out!!!  
So whilst on a roll with another design for a teaching project I suddenly decided I simply HAD to knit.  I get these whims from time to time!!!  Gloves are the current project as one of my daughters mentioned she could do with another pair!!!  
A start has been made!!!  These will be fingers to cuffs again as I like the way of working.  Here’s a link.
