one more sleep!

One more sleep and I'll be heading up the highway for the Bendigo Sheep and Wool show!

As tradition dictates, I have a new hat for the occasion.  It's the Moss Stitch Diamond beret, made in Bendigo Luxury 8ply, colourway "Barley".
I used 4.5mm needles, which has knitted up into a lovely drapey beret, without too much slack. 

I love it!  I was planning wristwarmers to match, but time has got away from me.

and you know you're going away to a knitting weekend when you pack your current projects plus back up's, before you pack your toiletries!  (don't worry, roomies - I will pack them eventually!)

I can't wait to catch up with you all tomorrow and the rest of the weekend - see you there!!!!

The hat looks fantastic and I love the barley color. I have an 8 ply ball in exactly the same color waiting for a project! Have fun in Bendigo too!

Hi I live in Bendigo and went to the show. Fantastic array of fashion and wool products. We actually host a number of regular exhibitors at our accommodation venue and I love seeing them each year. My blogspot is wwwbig4bendigocomau.blogspot.com
