From little things, big things grow...

On my mind today is a new project of mine. At a Knit and Natter group ( part of Knitting for Brisbane's Needy) I attended almost a month ago, I took some yarn that was on the 'help yourself table'. I wasn't sure what I was going to make with it, perhaps a scarf?

I took home 4 balls of this yarn

Then late last week, I got my inspiration. I went to my 'Ebay treasures' or oddments that I've been able to buy at very little cost. After a bit of rummaging, I ended up with a selection of yarns that suited the 'picture' that I had in my mind...

Oddments including mohair

A little trip to Spotlight for the 40% off sale also saw 2 more balls added to the pile.

Some 'lash' type yarns to add texture

And this is the progress after 2 days. Yes...yet another garter stitch afghan ! I guess I'm a bit predictable but the end result will be something nice and warm for someone in need...hope they like bright colours! Yes I know, maybe I should have named this post , 'From little things, big things can, and will grow'!!!

PS Thank you for those kind comments about my cat Lina,that many people left  on my blog last week.
