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!




My beautiful 6 year old in her Liberty dress we bought in London last year




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

It is wonderful to see you blogging again Mel. The wicked sweater looks great on you and you are such a quick knitter too, 5 days. Your daughter looks beautiful in that very sweet dress too.

I'm sooooooo glad to see you back!!!! The Wicked is a lovely sweater, one I've had queued for ages. Maybe it's time to do something about it? Looks great on you! Hugs,
