Spoils from the Show

I'm Bragging Now....

Remember these creations that I recently entered in the local Agricultural Show?

Woo Hoo!!     Look at this....

Now because I am so pleased that I won at the show I am celebrating with a GIVEAWAY!

Thats right I thought I should share the love   :-)

Some luscious knitting with some funky wool and we have a beautiful Rainbow  'Sideways Shawl'   The Shawl is a favourite up here in FNQ and I have had numerous requests for this pattern as it is so cosy and it is also versatile.  The main part of the shawl is not wool in this one,  but it is a nice soft novelty yarn which is not scratchy on your skin.  The stripes are wool so you will have to be careful with washing or getting it wet.    Now if you would like to knit one up for yourself here is the link to Pickles  for the pattern.

BUT  if you would like a chance to win this lovely shawl just leave a comment and I will draw a winner next Tuesday (20/7), that way all  my readers overseas will get a chance to enter.

Doesn't that look snuggly!!....

And finally here is a sneak peek at a little something I have been working on with my HUGE crochet hook....

Just playing around with a pattern at the moment but should have a reveal in a few days.  This was our display at the show with all our lovely wool and our spinning wheels.     :-)

Please enter me in your great giveaway (if you think it's fair that I should get a chance of more goodies from you, I'll understand if not), the shawl is wonderful, looks so yummy on and just what I need as it's cooler today and wet after weeks of very hot weather ha ha. Glad it's not itchy too, so important. I'm off to look at the pattern just in case. Have a great day, Lis x
