two treats and some garden

I got two treats on Friday.  Firstly I treated myself to some of these cute Art Viva knitting needles.  They are made from Tasmanian Oak and have a funky little bauble on the end.  I purchased them from Biome which is this awesome store all about sustainability and making a difference in the way we live.  Something I think is very popular amongst the handmade/blogging types.  They also stock the beautiful Woolganics yarn as well as several craft and knitting books and some cool craft kits for kids.  The needles are awesome but the little bauble does add a tiny bit of weight to the end which you have to get used to.




Then when I arrived home in my mail box there was a treat from a quilty/bloggy friend.  It is the cutest little quilt you've ever seen.  So tiny and intricate.  

Here it is beside one of my knitting needles for comparison.  These are pretty short needles mind you.  

Just look at the size of these nine-patches.  Each little square is about 1cm.


And a litte update of the garden while I'm here.  I was sitting on my front steps in the sun knitting and thought how lush my veges were looking.

Don't you just love the patterns that appear in your yarn ball as you work through it?
