New Project

This weekend hasn't been too bad for my knitting - i had thought that the no knitting needle rule on the plane would enforce a no knitting ban on myself.. However, Quan and I discovered a little craft store here in Kalgoorlie and although the yarn is limited in selection to acrylics, cleckheaton and sirdar, I did manage to pick up some Cleckheaton Pure Wool 12ply in a heathered grey to knit this pretty thing up:

This is my first time knitting a top down raglan, and it started nicely at first with my 64 stitches. However, with the increases, it has now ballooned to 214 stitches per row, so now it's taking me so very long to complete one row *woe is me*. Unfortunately I dont have a camera with me, but I'll post progress pics when I get back to Perth!

Also picked up some grey and black yarn as I'm planning to knit a little houndstooth scarf for winter...

Now i'm off to catch the plane back to Perth! I'm flying Skywest instead of Qantas this time and I haven't yet come across any "no knitting needle" clause so hopefully I'll be right :)
