Yesterday was the Knitting Coven, we were a bit down on numbers due to circumstances beyond our control!! Sharon had medical things to attend to, and Suzi was bar wenching!!! There were tiny premature baby hats and socks, a scarf knitted on giant needles ( only 8 stitches!!) Sharfik ( still going!!) the star baby jumper and much, much more!!! Sharon gave me my prize from her competition at the stall on Saturday, some very lovely Everglade coloured mohair. I like it, even though, as she pointed out, it is not all green!!! What shall I knit?? What??
I have finished the back of Bolshoi. After the rib there are only 100 rows. It takes so little time. I am giving people a head's up that I will be knitting another one of these if I like it : in another green colour!!! I am on the home run of the last Turing sock and the Interweave socks are calling me!!!
The new Simply Knitting UK is here. It had a few things I might like to knit, but I just enjoy having it!! I have my new glasses too. They have dark brown/black frames and the inside is a kind of leopard print, but made of black faux lace on a gold background!!!
This morning it was -2.5*C. The puddles were frozen solid and Harki and Peri had the very best walk!! They ran through the grass and it crackled and cracked under their feet!!! I wore my lovely scarf, even though it didn't match my top!! Thanks, Donna, it was divinely warm and very pretty!!! It is loved and very much appreciated!!!
I am off to the union rally against WorkChoices now. There is a march, but I can't march. I have used all my walking energy wisely this morning on The Labradors. There is a meeting at the end of the march at the Albert Hall. I will be sitting for your rights, never fear!!!
A bit later on..... I have been to the rally where-there-were-no-chairs and I had to sit cross-legged on the floor, though I stood up to see Bill Shorten of Beaconsfield fame!! All the miners were there. The beautiful Albert Hall was filled to capacity upstairs and down. Outside directing you can see, I think, PC Maree Fish, a gold medal winning Hocket Olympian from our very state!!! The pictures will 'biggen' if you click them!!!
