I've been doing a bit too much comfort shopping, acquiring new stash. Highlights include:
Black Bunny Fibers DK 'Pop Rocks'
Lots of 8ply/DK wool in a variety of colours bought at the Clegs sale.
This bright orange is for a beanie for my friend Phill. Phill is a volunteer with Victoria’s State Emergency Service. Amongst other things, he goes out on the coldest, windiest, wettest nights of the year to help clear trees which are blocking the road or have fallen onto people’s homes. And he doesn’t earn a cent for this community work. So when he asked for a beanie in SES colours, of course I was happy to contribute what I could.
A half-knitted SES hat
(note I am using the new stitch markers I received from knitingjo in the Australian Ravelry swap)
