Bendigo Wool Show 2009

Yesterday My DD Jen and Ds Logan and I headed for Bendigo for the wool show,
Bendigo is the Mecca for woolly goodness each year a place to see and touch all sorts of pretties normally only available from mail order.

We got to see sheep shearing demonstrations which Logan was very interested in,

Alpacas and sheep everywhere

And so much pretty yarn, my favourite stall is Pear Tree

Where did the last year go?

HI All,

It's been a long and complicated year during which I have seriously neglected this blog, time to make amends :0)

Somehow or another an entire year has gone by and Miss Bella had another birthday!

So last saturday i decided I really NEEDED a handknit jumper to wear to The Bendigo Wool Show this weekend and so I cast on Wicked in Bendigo woollen mills luxury 10 ply and I knit, I finally cast her off at 12.28am on Friday morning, joined in all the ends and washed and blocked and then went to bed about 2am, I woke up at 7.45 and got ready to leave for Bendigo wearing my new jumper :0) It took 5 days to knit, I don't know why I had it oin my mind it would be too much knitting and take too long to try anything for me?

A terrible picture taken very early in the morning-lol
