small plant belongs to the lily family and grows in the sandstone areas around
Sydney including the Blue Mountains, and flowers in December, hence the name. I wish you and yours a very
happy and peaceful Christmas season and may the new year bring you lots of creative ideas and wonderful projects to explore and share.
Who knows what lies below the
turquoise waters of Sydney harbour? I hope James enjoys this for his room. It
was fun to add Nemo and Dory, and all the other sea creatures to keep him
entertained. (Thanks to the Beetles for inspiration and yes, James knows the
songs too) Finished size 23 inches x 37 inches (58 cm x 94 cm)
The Eriskay jumper is coming together with front, back and one sleeve completed. The only problem is that it seems I probably spun this natural-coloured Merino yarn from two different fleeces or perhaps from just a different section of the fleece. As a result, as you can see in the two balls of yarn, the one on the right is slightly warmer in colour. It doesn't look very different here but when knitted there is an obvious variation in hue. However I guess that is just a characteristic of homespun. This is the original homespun jacket that I recycled.
