"Better Late Than Never" was going to be the title of this post, but I, too, can't post a title............never mind. Sorry that I haven't posted before now-I had time to finish the knitting & mail the rug to Kylie, but that was about all. It was the end of school term here, and we had head colds, and just general pandemonium. I did quickly take some photos, but due to gale force winds here, they are taken inside in less than ideal conditions (that's my excuse for any bad pics, and I'm sticking to it).

I did some garter-stitch stripes, and then a simple chequer-board section so that it wasn't lost in the variegated yarn. If I had been better organised had more time I would have transferred the stitches onto a piece of waste yarn and taken a picture of the rug fully spread out.....
Oh, almost forgot-here is my entry in the accompanying book.
I hope that this blanket gives you much pleasure. It will travel around Australia during its creation before it arrives home to you, but that will only be the beginning of its life as it travels with you through your life. Wishing you health and happiness.

Sorry girls, I can't post titles at the moment on my blog posts... no idea why.

Just wanted to post and say that Kylie has now received the girl's rug, and we are 1 knitter off starting the boys rug! So I will go and buy another circular needle this week and cast on for a lucky little boy so the rug can be on it's way before we head to the snow in August.

Keep up the good work girls, and I look forward to seeing the latest rug pics when you get a chance to upload them Leonie. Hope you're all keeping warm and knitting happily.
