fly, shop, eat, watch, walk and play

Melbourne was a blast. Caught up with old friends and new ones. Went to Rose Street Markets, one of the highlights (thanks Fran and Em). Footy at the Dome on Friday night, I had a blast. Lots of yummy french toast at Babka, delicious yum cha at the Oriental Tea House (recommend it), lunch at Segovia and Mart. There was Big Brother contestant spotting on Chapel Street as well as RocKwiz hostess spotting on Brunswick Street. Obligatory chocolate shopping at Haigs. A little bit of crafty shopping at Martas, first visit for me. Overwhelming especially when you’re shopping with two very patient non-knitters. I managed to do some damage and buy some slubby.

There has been crafting, just no photography. Finished the multidirectional diagonal scarf, excellent pattern for Big Kureyon. Also finished The Son’s scarf, lovely if I do say so myself. I have a couple of kitties in the works and am at the point of considering which of my STR sockclub socks I want to cast on. I also bought Cat Bordhi’s latest sock book. Holy moly that woman is amazing. I’m also participating in the muslin bag swap and need to get moving.

Thanks for all the comments on the last post. I think I’ll just become the little puffer train…."I think I can, I think I can….", hmm maybe it should be changed to "I know I can, I know I will". LOL. Anyhow, happy crafting!

    Thanks for posting your Melbourne visit news. And loved the latest photo of you and The Son. Her allegiances are now known. I support a team, that is the OTHER one in WA that needs support….bc their players can’t even make it to the end of the season before they start post-season drinking. Good grief. Your info on the multi-directional scarf has inspired a cast-on for me…am going to try a lacier version with some lorna’s lace sock yarn, on a needle size or 2 up…will see how the first triangles look…..
