I stumbled across the second issue of Jo Sharp Contemporary Knitting at a local newsagency. I haven’t yet seen it anywhere else yet, including online. Anyone else seen it? RRP is AUD$14.95 which is reasonable considering the format and content. There were a couple of items that stood out. I don’t like the colourway for the blanket, but the pattern is appealing. The jumper is not usually a style I’d choose, but I do like the simplicity.
I have a thing for ric rac. I found some "mini" stuff recently at a local fabric store. The colours are a little more vibrant than I’d normally choose. They also had some plastic rose and cat buttons. I also picked up some ribbon at Lincraft in their recent sale. Fossicking in Spotlight I found these cute gingerbread men buttons.
And, finally, M recently posted about a Lamb Chop pattern she found. So off to ebay I went and found one. Why do I want to knit a Lamb Chop?
