Bead flower

 I found this pattern on the net and just had to give it a go . The first problem was it was a Russian site and the translate left a lot out or just made no sense at all.

I have done a few of these scarf's but have not published them on here mainly because they have been given away before I have had a chance to photograph them. As you can see they don't take the best photo but you get the idea. In the past I have only cast on 5 or 6 stitches but this yarn I brought in Spotlight had a pattern in the label and it suggested 10 stitches , I would have to say its too wide and needs two balls to complete . I am making another one and only using 5 stitches this time.

My new Toy

Finger marks are a problem.

I love the pink colour much better than black.
Wayne gave me a Toshiba tablet for my birthday this year. I tried to buy it locally but the price difference was to great between here and an Adelaide shop. I have only had it a few days but have had fun looking for apps and loading my files onto it. I am planing on using it instead of printing out my knitting and crocheting patterns and wasting trees.

Name the spider

This spider has taken up residents in our rockery. She has been busy eating bugs and fly's. She has also killer several mates but is a good mother having hatched lots of baby's. What I would like to know what type of spider she is.

Pompom yarn

 I brought this pompom yarn from lincraft last year . After I finished the blanket I decided to knit it into a scarf but I think i have it a bit wide and need to try again. I cast on 12 stitches and it is only just long enough for a ascot length scarf and it a bit wide on the back of the neck. Love the colour change though.

Last paving slab

I have finally finished the 6th paving slab. I have Mosaic   tiled them all over the last year or so. When I was in Mt Barker we went to a recycle place and found lovely bags of mixed small tiles.
