Yarn Along

I have 2 of these little portal windows in my lounge and I love looking out of them this time of year because our grape vine has started to fruit and the green leaves shine through the window, oh my, it’s a wonderful green, the green that sends your heart racing…

My yarn has arrived from Nurturing Fibres for me to knit my Warthog pattern. I just love the subtle colour variations that just say warthog to me. The test knit will be opening soon for this pattern over on my Mamma4earth Raverly group.

As soon as this pattern goes live, once it has been test knitted, I will be offering a giveaway for the yarn and the pattern to a few readers, I am so excited to do this:) I will keep you updated.


Two other yarns arrived last Friday, there is that green again, I bought it from Betwixt, such gorgeous yarn, it’s a handpainited Merino / Silk / Kid Mohair. These skeins are going to be knitted into cowls, I can’t wait!

Joining today with Ginny.

What are you busy working on?

    Your talent and imagination is just amazing, a warthog sounds smashing!

      You are so kind Tracey, thank you.
      I can’t wait to finish the little Warthog, he is hopefully going to be a cutie with his tail in the air:)
      The portal windows were put into our house when it was origionally built in 1927, when we moved here, 9 years ago, the wooden frame was painted over with white enamel, we sanded a few coats off and discovered beautiful Oregon pine! It’s too beautiful, I love looking at the green that appears each Spring and Summer from the leaves outside.
      Take care:)

      You found such beautiful yarn. Can’t wait to see them done up into the Warthog and cows. Thank you for sharing your talents with us. I’ts also so enjoyable to see your beautiful green leaves through your window. What a fun house it looks like you have. I live in Colorado, US where we are now experiencing a dry, brown autumn. It’s so nice to see your green. We are having Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am grateful to have been introduced to you and your fabulous work!

    I agree with you about the yarn for the wart hog; the subtle changes in the yarn is looking good and will make for a wonderful animal. The star is lovely and in perfect proportions to each point. I would love to have directions if that becomes possible. The glass is something I have never seen before and makes a fabulous scene!
