Hi All - (from all over the world it seems!!)

Saying 'hello' from Tasmania (Australia). Came across this site recently while looking for patterns to adapt for a special project for my daughter.

With both my (adult) children living in the hotter states I thought that when grandchildren arrived that my knitting skills would have to remain dormant.

- but not so!

Very newly pregnant daughter is already considering 'photo opportunities' for the unborn bub (gender still unknown), and I have been having a ball researching patterns for her 'wish list'.

She even wants a baby shawl! - and I just love lacy knitting. So it's a win all round!

But along the way I discovered an almost complete UFO - it just needs the front band. So just putting it out there (hope against hope) that someone has a ball of Patons 4 ply Feathersoft shade 2295, dyelot 17 (or similar).

The wool is so old that I am not even sure if it is made any more! - so it is very much a longshot!

Anyway, enough from me...

It's nice to be able to say hello, and to meet people from all over! I am loving all the projects that I am seeing. You are a very creative bunch!

Happy knitting folks.

I do hope you find your yarn.... but with it just being the front band, a c ontrast would be nice and save a project....... Maybe a dark teal or a bown would even make it look more modern....... Glad you found us.... Lots of inspiration and help...

Thanks Dreamweaver, I was thinking to possibly go the teal route and pick up on the green side of the palette if I can't get a match. (unlikely). It is such a gorgeous colour though that I am really hoping against hope!

Re hot weather knitting... with three little 'sandgropers' already who live in tshirts and thongs, there is not much scope for knitting for that lot - even using sensibly, heat friendly yarn.

And the new bub - well he/she will be at about the same latitude - but way over on the other side of the country. Hence my delighted surprise.

Hello Sherri6, have you looked on ebay for your wool, or maybe put an add on here in the classifieds.

Welcome from Kenosha Wisconsin. Needless to say, we wear everything I knit here. My first granddaughter will be two next February and after knitting for four grandsons, I'm ecstatic. Will be dressing her future dolls also.

Have been to your little island a few years ago - heard the church bells ringing EARLY 1 morning while staying in Hobart. Drove all around - saw the beautiful countryside. Also have spent many months on your OZ "mainland." Simply love OZ. Have many friends there.
