Tiny Tea Leaves

A Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan for Grace. I used Bendigo Luxury 10 ply in Leaf. I loved knitting this - the pattern is easy to follow and knits up pretty quickly. More details on ravelry.


This is what happens when you try and take a sensible picture of all three.

Well at least one of them is looking at the camera! Love Grace's new tiny tea leaves, just perfect on her. It makes me want to knit another one!

Love it, and the colour is lovely. MAN I wish I could download knitting expertise straight into my brain! It's such a fantastic hobby. See you on ravelry (when I get that whole expertise thing down)

Well done. My Mum is a big fan of bendigo wool, and a prolific knitter. I have used them a couple of times too - great range of colours.

Hi Kate - I have seen a few bloggers knit up the tea leaves pattern now, so I have gone and purchased both the adult and child one for my girls and me! I also must try the Bendigo wool at some stage - the colour choices are fantastic. Kirrily :).

That cardy is so gorgeous. I absolutely love the colour. You must be really patient. It's scarves and dishcloths for me.
I saw this today

and thought of you. Not sure if you have already seen it.
Have fun getting ready for Up Market.

Love the tiny tea leaves - but thinking that maybe I should knit one for myself first:) On a bit of a ME knitting binge at the moment - Love the photo of the three of them together - I can never get one of my two both looking or standing straight either.

Jodie said...

Your kids are so cute !!! Are you heading this way in 2011 at all ?

Bianca Jae Makes Stuff said...

Your girls are just the cutest! I love the tiny tea leaves too....how do you reckon a non knitter would go at knitting it? xox

Treann said...
