Just an update...

I have just updated the website with some items.
Plus the Mooroopna Farmer's Market is on tomorrow.
I have been tidying the knitting machines and hope to do more work on them soon, other than small scarves. I have to run off an earflap hat for show and tell at the local Knitting machine club this week.
Have completed a couple of handknit shawls this last couple of weeks.

Time is not long enough.... do all the things we want to do. Seems to take forever even to knit a shawl but I finished it for the market at Nagambie. The poncho is past the halfway point, taking me longer than a jumper.
I am going to look forward to using the knitting machine on some handspun in the near future, as well as some of our North East Yarns.
Off to Melbourne airport today to stay overnight to see Rebecca off early tomorrow for her 3 year working stint overseas, (I think it will probably be more as she likes travelling). My other 2 girls and 2 granddaughters are coming as well, so we should have a nice catchup session as a family.
Next weekend I will be spinning at the Echuca Steam Rally on the Saturday, and then doing the Girgarre Market on Sunday.
In the meantime I have some thick and thin in the dyepot.
I had a great time at the Knitting Machine Seminar last weekend, coming home with a Machine Embellisher from Kate's Sewing Centre, (had looked at this previously at Bendigo show) and a bulky knit machine. (Can't take me anywhere without buying something new).
