There's my second go at pattern testing Tikki's new knit.
I'm using Woolganics, organic wool in the Gondwana colour way and I am smitten. Its the most gorgeous wool I have ever worked with, both the colour and the texture. Of course I love that it's Australian and organic too.
I love how this pattern is knitting up and am most excited to finish it.
There's my Tea Leaves cardi.
Thank you for all your offers and suggestions about where to find another ball of BWM Forest. After posting my request on the BWM forum on Ravelry, I found a gorgeous woman who is going to deliver a ball to Bren at his stall at the Collingwood Children's Farm farmers' market this Saturday. She was even happy to swap wool for organic veg! Fancy that!
Oh Ravelry how I love you!
And finally, there's my Tikki KAL.
Now this one is really a bit of fun.
KAL stands for knit-a-long. Each week Ms Georgie releases a few lines of a pattern and the 200+ members who have signed up, knit those bits of pattern with no idea as to what we are in fact knitting.
That's right! It is a mystery pattern. We were told the amount of yarn we needed, and given the option of a boy pattern or a girl pattern, and a range of sizes and the rest is one big mystery.
The picture above is my step one completed and I have step two ready to go but it looks complicated and so I am waiting for a quiet moment (ha!) so I can concentrate.
Does this sound fun to you or have I become a knitting geek?
What's up in your creative space today?
Have a happy Thursday y'all. X
