Bendigo Woollen Mills…..

DSCF8653

Today my sister Anne and I headed off to Bendigo to visit the Bendigo Woollen Mills and I must admit I thought I’d ended up in wool heaven! I was very good though and didn’t buy too much just a few balls I needed to finish off a couple of projects I have on the go……

But I just couldn’t resist this pattern called “Floral Beauty” which ended up coming home with me.I’m seeing this one made up with all my leftover wool from my many different projects so another long term project is on the horizon, the pattern calls for 8ply but I’ll be doing mine in 4ply and just making up more blocks till I get the desired sizing…….I know, I’m hopeless when it comes to starting something new before finishing off my many other projects Sad smile  but on the bright side this one will be for me when it’s finished and that has to be a good thing Smile

I A-DO-RE wool ! I have been known to buy wool and then give it away because I knew I wouldn't do anything with it in the end. Good luck with your project ; I love those patterns, they remind me of my long-gone youth ! x

the new pattern is gorgeous Barb, I wouldn't be sharing either if I were clever enough to make it!

Hey Barb, don't you know it's compulsory to start new projects before older ones are finished?!

Gorgeous pattern! I really love the colours too. It is a treasure trove for yarn fans :) It seems you were very restrained, well done you ;)
