The colour is goregous. I am planning a trip to the Bendigo Woollen Mill in July when I head to Daylesford. Can't wait to see all those colours for real.

Renee said...

Yeah gorgeous colour - one of those colours you can't get enough of. I never bother with test patches - maybe that's why I'm a very very ordinary knitter!

I am not a knitter myself but truly admire those who have the patience and skill to knit. The color is so inviting!

What gorgeous yarn! I have been converted to gauge swatches - annoying at the time but saves sooooooo much time later!!

I am doing most of my knitting on circular needles now even when I am not knitting in the round. I really love not having pointy sticky outy wings. Test patches are great but I just never remember to do them...
