Platypus on Collins Street

Cleckheaton have re-issued a delightful pattern book from their archives. Aussie animals. We had a visit from the Platypus who, understandably had a bit of a freak out in Collins Street.

He is knit up in our Morris and Sons Estate 8 ply.  The book has 15 gorgeous Australian critters to knit up. Among our favourites are, of course, the platypus, the frilled neck lizard and the emu.
