"Winter of Textured Knitting" round up: chute #1

Winter has definitely hit Sydney - it's much colder than it should be at this time of year, especially in the mornings. As we get deeper into winter, we put away those light, lacy wraps and our thoughts turn to warm knitted items. So what's been happening? I'm only going to give you a sneak preview - you'll have to drop by the different blogs to see it all. Plus there are quite a few photos so the round up will continue for more than one post!

Jan was the first to declare her textured knitting again this month - well done, a gold star for you! [Oops, sorry; it's the teacher in me!!]. She's been a-cabling lovely warm hats. You'll find two here and a third here.

The rest of the round-up is done in the order that comments were left after I wrote a post asking participants to contact me.

Rose Red asked if she would get full marks for her homework. What do you think? First there was some Buried Treasure. I didn't know which texture to show so you get both; these are RoseRed's own photos - uncropped by me. Can you guess what the Buried Treasure is?

Then there's RoseRed's "just a scootch softer than Nellie" knitting [aka "lace but not lacy"]:

While you're there, you may want to look at Hedera - lace but oh such a pretty texture.

And, just when you thought it was safe to leave RoseRed and her sticks, this morning she posted many photos of this Pearl [sorry about the dark photo; RR's are much better!]:

A gold star for you too, Rose Red. Homework above and beyond!

Tune in tomorrow for the knitting coming out of chute #2!

Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
