Three birthdays

A red knitted dress for Emilia who is turning three with a moss stitch bodice finished with a  crocheted picot edging. Made in BWM Luxury 8ply in Brick

 A green lace cowl for my sister in BWM Luxury 8ply in Bracken. Pattern here but finished size was 22 inches (56cm) wide and 15 inches (38cm) long as I like cowls to drape well.

A red horizontal knitted scarf for an aunty turning 90 years of age. Hope it brightens her day!

Just received this order of Murano wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills. Fabulous colour and 100% wool but it is at least a 10ply yarn not 8ply as suggested on the label. The stripes are a bit regular for my liking in stocking stitch and look much better in seed stitch. In fact I think I probably prefer the back of the work so may have to start this again...
