The Latest Finished Objects

Hi, everyone. Here are the latest finished objects, plus one work in progress. The weather has been lovely here in southeastern Australia, nice, warm days as our summer ends and autumn season begins. Also take a look at our cat and garden posts, as well as our summery photos.

Here is the Jo Sharp Box Stitch Jacket from her latest book Eclectic, knitted with Jo Sharp DK Wool in Viola. I just need to add the buttons.Virginia Waldron

Here we have a fitted cardigan called Pandora Virginia Waldronfrom the Jo Sharp book Knitting Bohemia, knitted with Jo Sharp Thick and Thin wool I found on eBay a while ago. Just need to add the buttons.

A work in progress is this Jo Sharp Moss Rib Sweater, from her book Contemporary Knitting, 34 Knitting Patterns. It is being done in Bendigo Woollen Mills Harmony French Blue. It is 69% cotton, 30% wool and .4% lycra, excellent as an in-between seasons sweater for cooler days this time of year. Those are my new moccassin boots to go with it!

And, my next project after I finish the Moss Rib will be the Mohair Cardigan from the same Jo Sharp book. I bought the mohair locally, it is JJ's 12 ply Mohair hand painted by Jan Gilray, from JJ's Specialty Yarns in Napier, New Zealand.

And here are some more recently finished objects.

From Jo Sharp's The Holiday Island - Summer Hand Knitting Collection. This top is called "Shell", a fitted rib top with cable panel at center front.

It is knitted with Jo Sharp Solo Summer DK Cotton.

The yarn color is Calico.

Hibiscus are in bloom now.

Daphne checks me out in front of the Adirondack chair Frank made for us.

Here we see a hanging basket of lobelias and the mandevilla vine in full bloom.

On a bridge over the local lake.

And here is another finished object from the same pattern book, this one is called "Zoe".

It is knitted with Jo Sharp Solo Summer Cotton DK Cotton yarn.

Here I knit away at the local park while a duck watches.

The color of this top is called Cloudless. It can also be done in Calico like the previous top.

And here's another finished object...
