I wanted to use my old apple picking basket, so I emptied the contents and found this great 1960s yarn, part Lurex from Dorothee Bis....the pics do not show the lovely deep coppery color. It had been forgotten, I loved it then and I love it now.
I remember I was going to knit this, may have even started it. The old Vogue knitting books were just my style.
My poor magnolia.....finally started to bloom and what happened? Big storm these past couple of days and some branches broke off, I bet it wishes it had stayed dormant. Now over 40 feet high I will show more photos when it is in full fig. (if ever)
The magnolia blooms are beautiful - I hope it doenst get too damaged, am looking forward to seeing it - 40' high it must look fantastic when in full bloom.ReplyDelete
The wool looks lovely - will you make something with it?
Oh that yarn is great! How about knitting up a few autumn/ winter wraps, it looks perfect!ReplyDelete
Oh dear, poor Magnolia treeReplyDelete
