On Friday night I continued on with some knitting I had started earlier in the week. With the All Blacks vs Samoa on the telly and fellow FNSI friends from around the globe, it was a very enjoyable evening.
Last weekend the MOML (hubby) and I spent a few days away (as our son put it; the MOML's annual weekend away because the cows are dry!). I had hoped that we were going to do enough driving that I could start and finish this wee vest in the same trip.
|First time I've done knitting in the round with these cable needles.|
Because the cable was too long I had fun and games... I changed to
a shorter one the other night and it was a lot easier!
|Fancy little cable - first time I've done this for a while!|
|This is a cute little stitch/row marker my lovely friend Joanne made me.|
Much nicer to use than the plastic ones!
|The crochet that sidetracked me - progress on the assymetrical shawl.|
|Outer shapes basted on and waiting for hand stitching on - maybe tonight :-)|
I barely took any photos while we were away but here are a couple to share —
It was nice to see Mum's cross stitch on our bedroom wall. These have been framed since we last visited. She bought these when we visited my son when he lived in Rockhampton a few years ago.
'scuse the reflections in the glass!
|Very Australian looking!|
|A gentle frost one morning made a lovely scene.|
It's the end of the weekend already, this one has flown by really quickly. I managed a little sewing this afternoon but nothing much to share just now. I'm looking forward to a peaceful week with not too many things on which means I may fit in some quilting time :-)
'til next time,
