Home from the Knitting Coven where we had a lovely time. We are saving our 'prize' draw for next time as we weren't all prepared, or there. By 'there', I mean in attendance!!!
Today Peri went to the Vet for her annual check up. Could she have been any more excited?? She had a great time, had 2 lots of treats and an injection. She is exactly the same mass as she was last year, so that is jolly good. Of course, she could stand to lose a kilo or two, but who amongst us couldn't??? (Please, refrain from telling me if you couldn't!!!) Harki stayed at home and I think there may have been baying, even though it was 10-15am. This morning they went for their walk and went down the track by themselves again. This time I have photographic evidence!! A little swim, and then when I called them, they looked up, and ran back up the track as quick as a flash.
I want to thank Vivian from Ecoyarns for her excellent service. Sharon and I ordered two Organic Cotton Kits and they came sans the cute paper bags. I contacted them and the bags arrived two days later. The bags are lovely thick brown paper with twine handles. We really wanted them, so thanks Ecoyarns!!
Thanks also to the lovely Jannette from whom I bought 2 lots of wool. One, for my Central Park Hoodie, failed to arrive. I tentatively emailed Jannette, and before I could say Jack Robinson, she had sent me a new parcel which arrived today. What a wonderful person, and she has such bargains to boot!!!
Even more thanks to Jae, who sent me cotton supplies from Over There. As green as green can be, two kinds of green, and a lovely surprise this morning. Thanks so much!!! You can't buy it here!! I am chuffed!!!
Yes, the Limoncello rescue has been documented, finally!!!
Colin Thiele, the author, has died. He lived to a ripe old age and wrote the most wonderful books : Storm Boy, Shatterbelt, Aftershock, Blue Fin, Brahminy, Danny's Egg, Sun on the Stubble and lots more... I read Brahminy to our double unit at school and I finished it with tears running down my cheeks - and the children were crying too. MrsDrWho refused to read the ending!!
Steve Irwin has died in a marine accident. His family were bushwalking at Cradle Mountain. It was a sad picture : his wife and children boarding the jet at the airport. The saddest picture...
And to finish, while I marked time, I started Pretty in Lime (otherwise known as the Molly Ringwald from Knitscene) using Lime Harmony from Bendigo. It knits up beautifully!! I am making it 5cm longer than the pattern as I usually do. I will have to swatch for the Central Park Hoodie tonight!!!
