mothers day

Editing to add that my mum got her parcel today and she LOVED it. I am so happy she did,thankyou to all who gave advise

I made this vest for my mum but then I worried that she might not like the crop style so I found a lovely white shirt in an op shop in Mitcham that goes with it perfectly. I also knitted a tea cosy for her as she is getting her gift late. The cosy is knitted with double stranded 8 ply and the stitch is called a half cable. I thought it looked pretty cool.
The top is made from Yarn Bee acrylic/cotton blend and knitted up nicely and is lovely and soft.

that's a great knit! I was wondering if you knew about Melbourne's collaborative op shopping blog 'I op therefore I am'


there are links there to maps and addresses of Melbourne's op shops. let me know if you are interested in joining.

regards, Amelia
