I think I can I think I can I know I can I
One knits away happily thinking one is pretty damn good at it and can do anything and everything that requires clicking two needles together....
...until of course one tries to do something new.
Like Fair Isle.
The Queen of the Tea Cosies found her royal interest piqued in the art of Fair Isle quite some time hence.
Those first attempts at weaving (or stranding) colour evoked the most unqueenly behaviour.
So pleased as to show off this Bella Princepessa (or hippy hat) and to strut about the palace full of pride.
It only took a year to master this new technique.
So those of you who think you should be able to do everything first time, perhaps those of you who might have struggled with the "Knitting in the Round on Two Circular Needles" thingy - you are not alone - even Queens are tested in knitting the new.
Kristin Nicholas' book Color by Kristin wrapped it all up beautifully for one.
1. There are 2 books to give away - two books filled with beautiful children's knitwear from Sweden
2. Threads and More Biggest Morning Tea cosy competition - the results are in.
3. Off to Gympie Craft Fair this coming weekend.
4. Oh and a new iPad!!!!!
