Ready toTry for Size.

The little purple marl merino & possum V neck cardigan I was knitting for Grandson is finished and waiting for him to try on this weekend. ( He and Son and DIL are coming down for the long weekend! )

 This is one of the new fabrics I got. I am making several Hex the same to form a patch of Tulips.

 When I was out on Wednesday taking a friend for a Birthday treat we had lunch where there is also a Garden Centre. ( Patio Rose )   ( If anyone likes David Austin Roses they have a huge collection for sale ) 
 I spotted this very greedy Preying Mantis with a bee and an earwig in her mouth at once. I don't think she could let go till they were both dead to actually start chewing. ( it is a female South African species - bigger than out NZ ones )

HI ! The purple sweater for your grandson turned out perfectly ! You make such nice, even, stitches. He will love the color and will look so handsome wearing it. :-) The matching buttons look so nice!
We love your new fabric -- how pretty. And, your photo of that praying mantis is excellent ! Amazing photo ! Those insects really do match the plants -- amazing camouflage.
Best wishes, from Marina and Daryl Lynn :-)
