outside at John Paul Village
That's Grams in the middle, Catherine, Carmel and three of Carmie's children.
Yep its not always about the knitting, but when we were all there five of us were knitting, so random cute photos are allowed to be posted, because 10 minutes earlier we were sorting out a yarn over problem with one of the scarves being completed just up the ramp behind us.
Outside the Hub
These are my sister's daughters, cute a buttons, don't they just look like little angels? I can tell you though they have plenty of go, and keep her hopping.
While reading too many blogs today (is there such as thing?) someone wrote that scanning was a successful way to capture their wip if there was no camera. Ah ha!!! So onto the scanner with the Noro Argosy
, which was pretty successful, certainly the colours came up truer than with the camera.
So behold my first (and unless I winner the lottery) and last Noro project. Silk garden is lovely to work with, but realistically is out of my price range.

World Wide Knit in Public day
is being celebrated on Saturday 9 June 2007, What are you doing?
So Saturday night, and I have just watched the last episode of West Wing ........ Its funny but life goes on.
Tonight I also got to watch the latest Bond movie, just a few months after everyone else. Not bad, lots of set up story, extremely hot James Bond.
Then I blogged some of my latest craft, because I have tendinitis in my left elbow and am not allowed to knit for at least a week (two days down, five to go).
This is the tallest scarf in Sydney.
Sunday the scarf went to church, sight seeing, and popped into the NSW Art Gallery. She was busy.
Sunday night finished knitting, bathed her, pinned her, and Tuesday night I wrapped with love. Wednesday off to see the world...... On her way to you.
Cheers this has been a hoot.
This is flying off to the USA tomorrow our time.
Hopefully Australia Post will co operate and speed it on its way.
Its for you pal.
Never having done lace before, I was a little put off by the lack of definition, but everyone keeps talking about the magic of blocking, and so I found it too! How amazing a little water and a lot of time, and from a blob to a very pretty picture.
This has been fun, sign me up for next time too.

Well the scarf is almost finished, and so I celebrated by taking it on a trip around the lovely city of Sydney.

Well, what do your think? The swatch is just long enough to be a snug, so unless I use it as a patch in a blanket, thats what it will be. Its actually just curling around itself in the photo, because its stocking stitch. All in all its pretty even. That was fun, bring on the stash of pretty rovings now!!!
This is my room. Can you see what I was playing with during the footy last night?
I have had the drop spindle for a couple of months now, but was afraid of destroying the beautiful roving with my first attempt at spinning, so it all just sat in the box and mocked me.

On this blog is a great picture, which I won't post here as of course its not my picture,
definitely worth a giggle.
Working, yes that's what I'm doing, for at least 15 more minutes.

My cat Whisper loves wool, and will sleep on it, play with it and generally be a pest if she gets half a chance. This is a pair of socks waiting to be born.
I need to learn how to get better at uploading photos, and commenting, but for now, I have a new (my first) digital camera, so I will probably be blogging every spare moment - when I am not knitting that is. (PS, does it count as bad when I use stash wool, but dye it and then use it?)

ise4 scarf detail
And this is a detail of the actual scarf, now approximately 5 feet long, almost done.
Knitting on the train
On the way to my first S'n'B, this is my ISE4 scarf, pretty blue.
Catherine, obliging as ever took the photo for me.
