On other snail related news, I finished a little 6-9 month cotton snail cardigan which will be part of the store stocking in the coming weeks on the A Passionate Yarn facebook page (i.e. it will be for sale..very exciting). It is a little design I'm experimenting around with, made in the very soft Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton - honeydew colour. This is a slightly plainer hardier version to suit a cotton 8ply (intarsia in cotton is not the most pleasant experience I find). The very cute mushroom button is from Jodulbug, New Zealand.
I also finally got to take a few pictures of the finished Bamboo Chinese Garden Wrap (I renamed it - had to get the bamboo in there!), which is made of the beautiful 80% bamboo, 20% wool I found in the Bendigo Woollen Mills back room. It is another version of the Unleaving scarf by Lee Juvan, made to be deeper and larger. I love the bright colours and it has a really beautiful flowing feel. It will also be part of the store stocking in the coming weeks!
