Lavender Pod

While browsing Ravelry the other day, I came across this little treasure. It's called a Lavender Pod and has been designed by Crobbles (incidentally, if you follow this link, I suggest you go and look at the Extreme Knitting part - very funny). Isn't it gorgeous? I used the very last metres of Esme Riband (which mum saw, loved, took and knitted into a scarf). I've used lavender from the garden and it smells so delicious, it was just begging to be put in something beautiful.

Now Crobbles was very clever and knitted hers in the round - no way was I going to put those few stitches on dpn's or 2 circulars or any other combination - I knitted mine flat then sewed it up. Far the easier option I think - but then I'm not good at knitting in the round (socks are different, they have lots of stitches!) I know lots of people who hate sewing up but love knitting in the round. I have already cast on for my second pod. I can see many more of these in my future...

Two more diet raffle prizes have arrived, but more on those another day (Rachel and Mary de B they were from you). Oh you're going to like these, so stop eating the chocolates everyone, lose weight and get in with a chance to win them.

Very excited because tomorrow I'm off to see this. Can't wait! (I am a big fan)
