.......Of Eucalyptus and leaves...... I so love the smell of the bush when the rains have just stopped and the leaves are all emitting such a gorgeous clean smell. Although the winter season is finally leaving us behind and the smells are more of wattle now.
This project was started at the tail end of Winter, the beginning of Spring when the smell of Eucalyptus was strong in the air. And how could I resist buying some yummy yarn which was aptly named Eucalyptus in colour?
I chose a pattern that once on the go would be easy to knit as a sideline project and not too quick to finish so I would always have something to do. The wool is 5ply so very fine and while I do so love the feel of the wool I am a little unhappy with my choice of an all in one knit as the round needles are not so friendly on my hands. This has come as a bit of a shock to me as when I was younger, round needles were my absolute favourite. Its just that my hands are finding it hard to hold the tension. stiff joints you know? Ah well, considering that, I am still chugging along with it and my daughter tells me she cannot see a thing wrong. I of course CAN........but imperfection seems to be the norm lately round here. LOL
I am up to the sleeves now and in the process of trying to decide what to knit next. I know I chose a few projects earlier but I don't have the pattern yet for one of them and I keep looking at all this wool and thinking to myself......You really need to learn to choose the pattern first woman! BEFORE you buy the wool! Really you do! Ha Ha!
Now that would be the sensible way to do it! But who ever said I was sensible? Hmmmm
Hugs and smoochies all!
Have a beautiful day!
