First in , best dressed!

There are really no words needed for this Post. I went to see Biggan at her studio in Brisbane yesterday and we had the time of our lives selecting 10 wonderful  and  unique colour palettes for the Colour Explosion  Jacket workshop to be held next Saturday the 22nd January  at Studio 61 , 61 Clarendon Rd, Perigian Springs, Qld. The second  all day class for this Jacket will be held on the 13th February 2022. If one of these  colour combinations speaks to you then email me immediately so that I can put your name on it .

It has been an Aunty Jan type of week. I named this scarf for her.  My Auntly Jan’s real name was Jeanette. She was the one that stockpiled knitted baby jackets and blankets to be given out whenever there was a new bub arriving and I mentioned her in my first post of the year. She was my Dad’s baby sister and had a zest for life, living, laughter and family that was uplifting. I would love a little dose of her right now.

Sorry, now back to my story; I thought I would write an E- book called Necks Generation using the wonderful Noro yarns with scarves, shawls and anything else you could wrap, tie or attach to your neck. And one simple book turned into turned into 36 patterns. So instead of one E-book I ended up doing 6 books with 6 designs in each. Some were old designs that were great. My definition of great is if people commented on them when I wore them, if they immediately wanted the pattern to make one themselves or if they were my first choice when I wanted to feel special. When they become a favourite then they are GREAT.

Also Noro’s colour ways get to me. They talk to me and I love what they have to say.

So, if I may, let me introduce you to Jeanette, in Necks Generation book 5 where I put all the designs that I called Quirky. It is a rectangle that is joined weirdly and is immediately transformed into a statement piece. And I love the colour of it.  It matches my eyes, he he.  Super simple stitching with an 8mm hook  gives instant flair. It uses 4 balls of Noro Silk Garden

P.S. about Aunty Jan

She actually dared to make a Canberra Raiders blanket in opposition to our football team when it was Mum who showed her how to do it. That was more than a bit cheeky we thought! And seemed to throw down the gauntlet.  So, I had to make one for the Broncos team. This  friendly duel initiated the self-publishing my first book The Footy Rug Book (translated as stadium blankets for those of you in USA) which was printed in 1997.
