Knitting possum

Dusting, window cleaning, lighting fires, vacuuming, knitting and costume sewing featured quite heavily this week. My neighbour caught me in the middle of a cleaning spree doing a very loud Bohemian Rhapsody rendition and invited me to watch the school kids rehearsing their performance for an upcoming event. I don't need asking twice to abandon housework.
I've been helping sew the costumes for the performance, so the lounge has been covered with black and sparkly fabric for the "Kiss" themed costumes.
I've been staying up way past my bedtime knitting too, lots of possum/merino gloves are coming off the needles for the craft co-op and here

Drop me a line if you'd like the pattern. It may be similar to others available but I made it up because the others I've tried don't fit as snugly as I like. Maybe it's the character of the double knit possum wool , I don't know. I should try it with some other yarn as well but I love this possum.

Hello, I'm so pleased to find your blog. It seems we have a lot in common. Although I'm not a knitter, I make felt, and love art and craft. This year I'm enjoying produce from our own garden, although it is a bit of a challenge gardening this far south.

Those gloves look wonderful - I'd love the pattern, please! They look very soft and snuggly.

Lots of requests for the pattern so I'll get it out of my head and into print this week. Will email it to all when it's done. Make a comment or email me if you'd like a copy.

Hey looks good, just being nosey-what craft co-op is that? Sounds interesting?

Hi - I'd love a copy of the pattern - I agree that the possum. I made a vest for my wee one. Sadly, he is not as wee as the vest and it doesn't fit anymore....

I'll make these with the rest of th wool.

hi there!
I've just started reading your blig and am enjoying its 'realness'...and I LOVE those gloves, just knitted a pair for one of my girls, but seems a bit 'bunchy' to me, so if poss would love to have a go with your pattern pretty please.
thanks so much
