Tiny tea leaves

In amongst the business of the last month (crazy school fundraisers , gala concerts, catching up with friends to discuss fabric finds and more) I sought a bit of refuge in knitting.  Knitting is such a perfect activity to do anywhere...even when walking along the streets of Redfern. The first step was finding some irresistable pear tree wool at A Coffee and a Yarn Newtown. 

Next was deciding the pattern....tiny tea leaves leapt out at me from many places so that wasn't a hard choice!  And then knitting here there & the car, at school, walking to work, on the train, at choir, in bed (but not advised in the shower!)  And here is the result.

I love it!  Right down to the 3 old green buttons Bronte chose for the front.  And so much so I have started the next one!  This time with some pinkish purplish yarn I must have come across when Bronte was younger...just as well I have another younger pink -loving child!
