Knit Along

I've just started this wonderful blanket (though knitting it in local merino wool rather than cotton).
The project can be found here.

This ‘Knit-A-Long’ design is a stunning patchwork knitted blanket which celebrates the seasons and calendar events throughout the year.
There are two squares to knit each month, one with a beautiful motif and the other plain.


So far, I have done two squares: a plain sampler in  'vanilla' & a Part 5 square.

This is the part 5 fair isle:



It's beautiful.

A Sid Beanie for the Doc

Youngest kids of the family ask and then receive. On Monday, the Doc asked me to knit her up a beanie. Using the same chunky wool I used for Felix, it took but a day. AustPost outdid itself and delivered it (from West Coast to East Coast), this morning. 😊

For a quick and easy first beanie to knit, get the pattern here.
