Pic 1 is Brea from the Rowan Lima Collection - If you are going to make something for the autumn this is a great pattern and a fabulous yarn.
Pic 2 is Trista (Talulah wanted to be in the pic) from the Rowan Classic Winter Solace Book. I have never used Alpaca Cotton before so when I was asked to knit this garment up for a client I jumped at the chance.
Click on the pics to get a closer look. Both patterns were fab to do and I cant help raving about the finished articles.

Woo Hoo - Lyndsey (with a little help from Nan Margaret) has finished her very first knitted project. She has done a fantastic Job and looks great in it. She is now knitting a couple of Tea Cosies. One for herself as she has just moved into a new place and one for a friend. It is great when a complete beginner can create such a lovely item. I am soooo proud!!!
I have been in Windsor this weekend visiting a friend I met over 20 years ago in Australia. He is Canadian and we have kept in touch over the years. I have visited him in the US a couple of times and went to his wedding in Toronto 13 years ago. It was great to see him and his family again. He has two beautiful children a stunning wife and a Mum who I can adopt me any time she likes. I am exhausted now but it was a great weekend.
I have also received my commissioned necklace from Daisy Chain Designs Jewelry. I love it. I will take a pic of me wearing it and post for you all to see. Thanks Jo you have done a stirling (ha ha) job.
I have to go to bed now as I will need to catch up on some knitting (yeah) and paper work (boo) tomorrow.
