So when I came to name the e-book for this trio of patterns; a collective noun seemed totally appropriate. The only debate was which one? You see, there are a number of collective nouns that can be applied to a group of macropods; court, mob, herd or even a troop.
Then Lily needed a new school cardigan, there were three balls of Malabrigo Rios sitting in my stash and a small sample of this wee cardie in front of me, so naturally that's where I went. Usually I would probably knit Rios at a dk weight tension, but I only had three balls and I knew that that would be pushing it. And so Lily's new cardigan got knit with a 20 stitch tension. And thus my friends, is the reason this pattern is available for a 10ply/worsted weight tension; simply because I had the sample before any pattern even evolved.
All three of the Wallaby patterns are available for purchase in my Ravelry store either individually or as part of the e-book, A Court of Wallabies.
Would you like to win a copy of the e-book?
In this post I am giving away five (5) copies of the e-book to readers. All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favourite collective noun is. At the end of this week on Friday night, I will give my kidlets the task of choosing their five favourite and they will be the winners.
Please take the time to read through the comments as the first to comment with a specific collective noun claims that one and any further comments using the same collective noun will be invalid.
P.S. If you've already purchased and then win, I am happy to refund the purchase price of the pattern/s.
