On the needles – Part 4

Man, I should probably take it as a sign that I’ve let the to-knit pile get out of control when I can get this many blog posts out of it. And this isn’t including Green Sprite, about which I could blog for hours. (Oh, Green Sprite…I wonder what you’re doing right now?) I keep coming […]

On the needles – Part 3

As I mentioned, I’ve decided to work on my WIPs while away on a forthcoming trip: as part of the investigation, I discovered my Mermaid Gloves, started in 2009 (I think). One down: I sat and stared at it for a while, wondering how I was going to tackle this. Lace knitting can be a […]

On the needles – Part 2

While assembling my monster “On the Needles” pile, a comprehensive gathering of all my current knitting projects, I decided to also mend a pair of glittens I made ages ago. But then, as chance would have it, I rested my scrap of mending yarn on my newly-finished Slouchy Sockhead hat Love. I took so many […]

On the needles – Part 1

Oy, I shouldn’t have done that. We’re going away for a week or so, and I thought “This holiday would be an excellent time to finish up some works in progress! Let’s see what’s on the needles!”.  I probably gave a gay little trill of laughter, too, congratulating myself on my excellent idea. It soon […]

Wildlife

While M and I are staying with M’s family, I took the opportunity to photograph some of the native wildlife.  There’s budgies: And parrots!   The bird feeder hangs right outside the sliding door in the main living area, so we get to peer at the parrots all day long. A rogue dog!  This bouncy member […]

Tangelo-icious

During the last night of my stay with my parents, I decided a cocktail was in order to commemorate the occasion. Like most of my cocktails, this was a completely half-arsed affair, but was delicious nonetheless.  Thick, tangy and foamy-juiced, which is pretty tasty. The use of one of my Mum’s favourite fruits, the tangelo, […]

Fluffybums

I must ask that you indulge me in a brief foray into the genre of nature documentation/kitty pics.  This is supposed to be a dignified blog. My parents, with whom I am presently staying, have three charming felines.  Neo, a mostly gormless, floppy black cat the size of a Mercedes; Mab, a tiny, skittish grey […]

Morning moo

When I got up this morning, the clouds were on the ground and the sky was pink. The view from Mum and Dad’s back porch is towards the Brindabellas, which are blue and purple in the morning.  Some of them have snow caps. My parents’ house is in the middle of a large property, and […]

Not home

This week sees me a little discombobulated.  After a whirlwind visit to Melbourne over the weekend to see Sigur Ros and some old friends (Sigur Ros was an awesome concert, thanks for asking, although the completely high, bearded dude in front of one at the show went on a Spirit Quest at some point, dancing in […]

On a jaunt!

On a whim, M and I trucked off to the South Coast this weekend.  It was awesome.  On Friday, we both knocked off work at midday (oh, the decadence!), packed my little car with as much knitting, food and wine as it could carry, and descended the Clyde to the South Coast.  Turn right at […]
