The Whig Rose is on the Legend and Lace website now if you want to download it. The price is $2.50 if you live in Australia, and less if you live in another country. Two reasons I don;t have to charge the 10% GST, and the Aussie $ has dropped value recently.
While it is winter I turn to my knitting. I started this really scrappy kind of vest/wrap. The idea is to buy 15 different yarns, different textures etc, break them up into smaller balls of between 1 and 3 metres (yards) throw them into a bag, and just use whatever yarn you pull out.

Tie the knots on the back of the work and just keep going. My combo of red and black is most appealing. It is a bit hard to see, but I have started the shaping for the arms, and the front shaping is just adding a stitch at each end of every 4 row. It will look better and make more sense when it is finished. I have used sparkly yarns, boucle, home spun, angora, etc.
It is cold and flu season again. My grand-daughter Skylar came to visit yesterday and she was not sick, but she was quiet, and made no mess at all. Something is not right there!! I asked her a few times if she was feeling ok, and she said she was. This morning I got a call from my daughter to tell me she has woke up with a croopy kind of cough. My DH John is in bed now (midday) and has been complaining of a sore throat. Fingers crossed I don;t get it. I have no time to be sick!!
