A light in the Fog!

The mornings here are dark now, even at 7am it's only just starting to lighten up, so when I had to go out to grab something from my little cabin (my craft cabin for any who don't know), and that meant turning on the light to see what I was doing...... when I came up to the kitchen and turned around, the little cabin looked so cute with it' lights on, that I couldn't resist taking a "winter morning photo" of it!   As you can see, things are getting a little "full" in there ..... kind of "overflowing" a little with skeins and balls of yarn! 

I am happy to report that I am using some of them though lol  Remember those balls of yarn I showed you last post that I was using to make "Therapy" ?  Well, here it is all finished!! (you can join in a KAL here if you want to see more about it) 
And I'm wearing it here with the Ingonish Jumper/Sweater I finished in May. It was a great pattern and I'll make more of  these in the future.

 On Saturday we had a gathering of knitters meet up at the café here in Bundalong which coincided with the Worldwide Knit in Public Day!  We ended up with some  members from the local Ravelry group, and also some locals from Bundalong and Yarrawonga - 19 ladies all up and what a great time we all had!  The café was a wonderful venue as we took over half of it and there was heaps of room for us as well as other patrons!!

I arrived home from work on Monday to find a parcel full of wonderful goodies waiting for me!  I had
taken part in a swap a couple months back now it must be, - I sent one over to the UK,  and as happens from time to time the one meant for me didn't show up.  Nobody knows if it was actually sent or not as the lady I was swapping with left the group and deleted her account soon after receiving her parcel so I don't know exactly what happened ..... except that a wonderful "angel" stepped in and sent me a parcel far beyond what was required of the swap! 

I feel so blessed by it all!  Part of the swap was to include something you had knitted, so here is this
lovely scarf Bonnie knit - in one of my favourite colours I might add!   The Angora Yarn and the Madeline Tosh are in Neutrals since I had put down initially for neutrals and wow, are they gorgeous!!  And don't you just love the project bag!  Bonnie and I are both nurses, so it has that wicked sense of humour that we can do with some days!!

Well now, I didn't think much had happened in the past week and a bit since I last posted, but it seems it may have been fuller than I had thought!  Work is just so crazy busy at present, and this time
of year I tend to leave in the half dark, or foggy morning and arrive home with little if any daylight left to quickly tend to the poor chooks and see to other chores!   I'm thankful I have tomorrow off, and don't head back to work till Tuesday - hopefully that will give me time to catch up with a bit of sorting that needs doing around here!   Well I'm off to see to a few quick chores before I leave for work...... looks like another foggy morning with lots of drizzling rain around!
Hope you all have a wonderful day, whatever you are doing
Hugs Sharm
