Wool and the Gang

Thank you for the sweet comments about Violets Blue Sampler - it's been such a lovely design to stitch and I love the shades of purple. I've now only have the words to stitch, and of course, 1 over 1 stitching is not my favourite so it's taking awhile, ha ha.

I've decided to have a little giveaway of the chart when I'm finished so watch this space if you would like to be included - I'm happy to post anywhere :)

A few months ago I was browsing Ravelry and spotted a black and white top that I quite liked. This lead me to the Wool and the Gang website, where I was smitten with lots of the cool designs.  The great thing is that you can buy a kit to knit your own or have the item made by the Gang.  I decided to go ahead and order two of the kits, there's nothing like this available here in NZ, and they arrived recently.

This is knitting up very quick on the 8mm needles!





These little accessories were also included.



These will keep me busy over the winter months :)

I do sometimes wish I enjoyed knitting, but sadly I don't - I love the Wool and the Gang designs, they are nice and modern and fun! Hope you have fun making them, your progress so far is looking great!
