Amid the HUGE amounts of rain that the top half of the North Island has seen (it has been incredible with major flooding all over the place and the most funniest thing? Auckland is now in the midst of a MAJOR water crisis! There is too much silt from too much rain and the water plants can not treat the water fast enough for our consumption! So we are all being urged to save huge amounts of water, even though we are drowning in it! if we don't we'll be getting UN-treated water through our taps and having to boil everything we use. We have a month of huge restrictions!) I have finished this today!
It is Beech Hill and was a very easy knit. I started it last August before the Knit August Nights wool retreat and it finally came off my needles this afternoon. I used a gorgeous Drops Lima mix of 65% wool and 35% alapca - it is divine. I used 6 x 50 gram balls, which makes it an incredibly cheap garment!! (so well under what pattern said of 928 metres - i used 600 metres! - might go back and look at stash).
My new gorgeous broach in the mail today - a surprise gift from my cousin Jackie - she also sent me this... s-w-o-o-n - my colours - LOVE! A lovely surprise!
(ps - not sure I like how grey my hair looks from the photos!)
