A Plethora of Unrelated Things.......
Get fit : start walking with The Labradors!! See Part 1 of their walk!!!
I have knitted a blue thing: Evergreen. All will be explained later. It can't show its face as it is either a dentist, or it is going to be a present!! You can just see the colour and the stitches!!! I loved knitting this : it is quick and cosy and cheery. It is not for me every day though, I still prefer those with a finer nature, but there is a place for very wool ply!!!
Harki and Peri have been having a whale of a time. Peri has been sunbathing, on her special Labrador polar fleece rug, on the deck and then in the garden!! Even though it is icy beyond belief in the morning, it is sunny and warm (17*C the other day) in the afternoons.
Harki-Parki-Parker-Posey has not, despite rumours, run off to Hollywood to star in Boston Legal with William Shatner and James Spader. She is, in fact, making a big fat mess outside by de-stuffing her TeddyBunnies up and down the steps. Doesn't she look so inncent and incredulous that there could be a problem at all??? That's a tennis ball tied up in a plastic bag at her feet. She thinks I should be going up the steps to get it and throw it back to her again. I'm not.
Chez 2paw has been fairly quiet today. There has been some soup making, some knitting, some Radio National listening and some finding of Inspector Frost for Wee Jock's mum. There has been the longing for a nap, and the avoidance of said nap in the hope of a good night's sleep.
Tomorrow is the last day of the school holidays and then everyone is back to work. Wednesday is the Winter Solstice this year. There will be no naked dancing about a bonfires in Launceston I'll bet!!!! But it does meant the turning point for Winter. Apparently Australia is almost all alone in the night in starting the seasons on the first of the calendar month. Most places count from the Equinoxes and Solstices, but for us we are already 1 month though Winter with only 2 more to go!! What we really need is some rain. Here is a picture of the creek from the little footbridge we cross when we walk. Note the absolute absence of any water in the creek, it is as dry as a bone.
Tonight I plan to complete Evergreen, which is in fact blue!!! Then I might knit some more of Kermit. Kermit has 7 more balls to be knitted quick smart!!!!
I am thinking of making a Sock Tote tutorial, with the pictures and the instructions. Maybe???
