Today we met up bright and early, setting out of a road trip to visit a sock factory at Crookwell. that was so much fun! We will be stocking a range of these socks in the shop.
We used the trip as an opportunity also to be tourist, stopping in small towns, revisiting places we had been to in past lives. For me it was Eagle View at Rydal
. A very long time ago Geoffrey and I stayed there, it was amazing!
We also took lots of photos of places we saw, here is a quick rundown.
The traffic light is of course a novelty, especially where it currently sits, in the bush above Kandos.
Kiamma Creek is for Sr Catherine, who is in Kiama at the moment, and well the others are pretty and so deserve our attention. The church is at Wallerawang, and is the Church of St John the Evangelist

holidays & tour de france
I have been back at work for a whole week, and as always it feels like I never left.
I feel like this year I merited the polka dot jersey for effort, as I knitted (designed) cowl, mitts & hat, the aim being use every metre of yarn from something extravagent, knitted 1 and 3/4 blankets for Save the Children with the lovely Sailor Coruscant knitting the rest of the squares for two completed blankets(and posted them off). I knitted two charity hats, and one scarf. not bad with two of the weeks of the tour falling during my normal working year.
I have not yet caught up with my knitting buddies to see how their various holidays went, but I will soon.
And I even had some photos of my holiday printed .... yep real actual photos! Wonders will never cease.
