This is actually more "off the hook"! This is my 3-D crocheted vessel.
I have finally finished the long rib-and-cable section of this cardigan. Now I'm starting to pick up the arm stitches to knit the sleeves the same way. This merino 4 ply knits up beautifully. But I got a bit bored with just knitting this pattern, so I started this:
Another cardigan! They're trendy now - for many years I considered cardies to be the pastel Bri-Nylon things my mother wore, and wouldn't have a bar of them. Now, I think they're great! And there are so many lovely modern patterns. This is an interesting lace design from Just One More Row (sorry, can't make a link work at present) - the curved bit is the right front, and this is brushed wool that I found at the op shop - 8 balls for $10. I blame Melody Johnson of Fibremania (have a look here - scroll down to December 15th) - this is another pattern I saw on Melody's blog and just had to have. I don't think she's made the pattern I'm using, but there are other great patterns on the site.
And this is a few agapanthus and gladioli from my garden.
