The weather has now turned decidedly Autumnal, the boys' are engrossed in cartoons & I have decided to remove the slack from tart & get the blog updated.
Ross' Elders Vest
The new Hawkes Bay Knitters Group on Ravelry has been meeting regularly & growing in size. It has been a real joy for me to have contact with such a inspiring group of women. I learn something new every time we get together. Sharing yarn, patterns & techniques has been revelation in moving my own knitting forward. One of these 'Ah Ha' moments came with the discovery of the Milo Vest by Georgie Hallam from Tikki designs. Having acquired the pattern & knitting up a newborn Milo for a friends baby, I can safely say, it's love. I have started my second Milo, as a part of a triptych for my own boys (they are of such a similar size that I am knitting them up for both of them to wear).
