and looking to crochet the Chunky Comfort Afghan by Lion Brand. It's a free download available on line.
This being my first time to the Bendigo Wool Mills I was pretty excited to see the huge area with all the lovely yarns....... and then there is the "back room" with specials......... hmmmm, what can I say except there were some that just couldn't resist jumping into my overflowing basket to come home with me.............
There may have been others that tagged along, but they are staying out of site for now....sshhh
Onwards to Carisbrook, to the big farmhouse, Lochinver, where the 12 of us were staying! It fit us in nicely (3 bathrooms helps plus a couple of small cottages right beside the big house for overflow rooms lol).
|Learning how to use my new Swift and Ball Winder...Ta Dah!|
I hadn't actually met any of these ladies in person before, but I couldn't have asked or planned for a better time! We all brought food to share and everyone shared meal prep, cleaning up, stoking of fires and car trips.

A fantastic time that I plan to be popping in my calendar for next year!!
I now have so many projects lined up waiting to be made its going to be interesting to see which ones make it to the hook or needles first!! ......... and yes, I did also get quite a nice bit of my knitting done........ almost the entire front of dh's stripey jumper!! He was pretty happy when he saw that................. now to get the sleeves done.
Have a fabulous day
