Last night was Friday Night Sew In hosted by Wendy - a wonderful way to knit, sew, crochet by virtual means. Since it's still winter here and I'm on a roll - late home from work and not at all prepared for a sewing evening - I grabbed one of the new balls of yarn purchased at Bendigo in last weekends haul. I think it will be perfect for a beanie for my eldest sons partner. She has been eyeing off all the handknits I've been making, so it's high time I make one for her! With only a couple of hours I sat down, watched a movie that just happened to come on when I sat down - and proceeded to cast on. I almost got the brim finished. I waited till this morning, which just happened to be sunny, to take a photo of it, and with the sun out and the lavender suddenly in bloom I couldn't resist having it as the background!While I was knitting, Scruffy decided he needed some special attention from Pete! I think he must know that I have to head off tomorrow morning to head back down to Melbourne for another work related day at the Alfred Hospital. I'm getting a lift down with daughter who is up for the weekend with her partner visiting his family who have had a recent addition to the family. It will be nice to get a ride down with them and spend the night at their place. I'll be catching the 6pm train back up after the course finishes at 5pm. 3 hrs on the train back to Wangaratta and then around 40 mins or so drive home - a long day!
I managed to get the other beanie finished and posted off to the 3rd niece having a birthday over in New Zealand. She likes rainbows - sure hope she likes this one as its rather bright!
I know it's officially still Winter here, but I just feel like we are having a snippet of early spring in the air?? Even seeing some of the early bulbs in full flower - yes, lots of weeds as well hmmmmmm - that all needs to go on the "to do" list!! I think by next weekend most of the "crazy busy" might have come to a slow down and I can get all my sewing projects back out (like the signature tablecloth) ......... till next time,
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
