Today is Australia day and I would like to share with you some of my photos that are quintessential Australian. Yes some are off my Valencia Princess blog but there are a whole heap of other ones . The cool looking couple are m parents in 1957 , on Glenelg beach South Australia way before any of us kids were thought of. Enjoy.
Here is photographic evidence of the fact. I have just, 2 hours ago, finished knitting this scarf for my sister. I began it for her birthday 18 months ago. Alas many other things happened and I never finished it on time. In the menawhile I was reminded, by many people, of my failure to see things through. ( supposedly).
So, after some time and the fact that I unwound all of it and began again; only 2 months ago. i am very pleased with my effort and the final result. Ok it is not totally perfect, yes there are a couple of wrong stitches, and a badly picked up one or two. It is the fact that i finished.
It is made from Pure Alpaca Wool from A farm near Kyneton, Victoria.
The wool is spun and hand dyed. It is sold at the Creswick Mills, Victoria. And the knitting needles are my great grandmothers size 4.5mm. It is 70 stitches across, 204 cm in length and was my first attempt at cable.
So I want to say Thank You Colleen, ( silver threadings) fro encouraging me to seek mindfulness.. This is a very proudly all Australian Made knitted scarf.
