The only word to describe this book is AWESOME! Finally, I now own a copy. The first design to knit will be Midwest Moonlight. And very slowly followed by about 5 or 6 more..

From the WOOL BAA shop in Albert Park, Melbourne. A few weeks ago, I purchased some yarn on-line from them, this time I went there in person. It's small but good quality, worth a visit if you are nearby.

BTW - that's my lunch in the top right hand corner. Prawn & noodle salad rice paper rolls with a spicy dipping sauce...Mmmmm Yum...

It never crossed my mind that something like this would be done in approximately 3 weeks, and in between working on other projects too. Giving myself a pat on the back for this number because I'm a smidge chuffed that it is FINISHED.

A close up view. All that remains now is a little wash etc. and it will be ready to use.

It's a quiet day in Melbourne today, that is for those select few that are at the cube farm. The race that stops the nation is on this afternoon..the good old MELBOURNE CUP..fingers crossed that my horses from the office sweep will do well.
The skies here have just started to drizzle, which is a good thing because the drought is so severe. Pray for a few days of good downfall which is so desperately needed. Melbourne may only be on stage 2 water restrictions, but in the Wimmera Mallee region, they have been on stage 4 for quite some time. They can't even wash their cars from a bucket of water.

On the lighter side of things....think of all those young Fillies & Colts out at the track today, all dressed in their finest without umbrellas...Now that's worth a giggle. lol. :-)

Another W. I. P.

Which means to me YAAAY, the Snowflake Ghan is finished, but um - er - ahem - guess who forgot to photograph it..Moi... This is the first thing that will be done on entering the home this evening. Stay tuned for a squizz because it's soo happy with the result :-)

This newbie, which has only just been started, will also be Ghan size. The yarn in this project is TLC Cara Mia, just love working with that yarn. It might take some time to complete as I am doing the whole thing in single crochet....oooooh boy.
