Tea Sets and Party Flags all knitted and nearly wrapped ready for a big suprise for a little girl and her mother. As they are spending some time in transit I hope these will be appreciated.
I am sure they will. I procrastinated and started a felted bag rather than finish sewing up the flags. Why do i do that?
The end result is magnificent though the colours of the Bendigo Cotton are magic together. Now on to knitting for me - no more deadlines.

I was expecting one of them (from the knittery!!!) but the other was a complete surprise and a fantastic way to stop my day being so grey.
My Tea Cosy Swap Parcel had arrived from the amazingly talented knitwytch.
You can see the tea cosy in action on right (can you spot the bee?) Such embroidery and colour.

Ravelry is officially a stash multiplier. Just check out this stash enhancer (well i helped a little) pack of acquired yarns this week. I am looking forward to much knitting with this little bounty.
Ravens, Silk Thread, Silk Ravens, Sea Wool and Casbah colourful stuff.
Other news has seen me volunteer to co-ordinate the next Ravelry Australian Knitting Group swap. I am looking forward to it - a bag theme. We have just boosted the group members to 500, so if we encourage this could be a decent sized group. Lots of anticipation and interest building over christmas with the kick off in January.

And it LOOKS FABULOUS if i do say so myself.
We managed to pick fantastic colours that look great together.
The draw string style ties look pretty great too.
Although the other half said I should have sewed them to the opposite side to make the opening and closing easier.
I have moved on to the Sea Breeze and No Vine Stocking Stitch socks and some 8 ply cotton party flags/bunting for my SIL and niece for Christmas.
