Our first stop was the Nundle Woollen Mill, as Martha & I decided we wanted to learn to crotchet. Retromummy crotcheted me two beanies for my girls last winter, and then was good enough to post the pattern on her blog, so we had brought that pattern with us, and we were determined to go home with a beany just like Retromummies.
So, I bought some gorgeous wool for a beany for my Maddilen, a crotchet hook, and headed out to Cottage on the Hill and said hello to Kerry & checked out all her gorgeous fabrics before deciding what we were going to purchase there.....
Here is the beany half done, I could hardly wait to get home from the Nundle pub to do some more crotchet, with a cup of tea & chocolate.....but I think Martha & I had a few too many wines at the pub for much crotchet to get get done tonight. Those Gunnedah girls led us astray that night....just one more drink girls, just one more, hmmmm.
Here is the flower I crotcheted....I finally got it! I failed to show you the first flower I did....it somehow ended up with seven petals....not quite sure how that happened, hahaha, when the pattern only has five! Peg did remind me though, that no flower in the garden is perfect, so not to worry :-) Anyway, I did finally learn how to read a crotchet pattern, talk about confusing. It might as well been in Chinese, sl st, ch 6 trb 20, I mean seriously, how can someone read this??
Anyway, Martha & I can now!! Woohoo.
Anyway, here is Maddilen modelling her new beany & very excited about it!
Thanks to Retromummy, who I had to email for help reading patterns on Friday night, thanks Corrie!!
