how are you?
it is a peaceful
blue-skied afternoon here in queensland.
swimming is cancelled due to school carnivals
being held today and through to evening...
making hay while the sunshines, most probably.
the days here have been slightly cooler
and i've taken up my knitting sticks...
you never thought i had any...admit it!
it is a simple scarf,
made from odd balls of wool
with different textures and degrees of cosiness.
i was finishing a scarf for my daughter
who upon the eve of her departure to canada,
said, "mum, you can finish off this scarf for me if you want to".
it wasn't this one,
but another that looks like a watermelon..true!
i'll show you when i've finished trimming it.
i only finished knitting the last 7 inches
and it was completed,
but my knitting desire was not fulfilled.
gathering up all my woolly supplies
i decided then
to make myself a scarf to ward off
the chilly winds of winter...
even though it's still summer here.
i will be prepared!
there was a birthday celebration over the weekend...
this chocolatey sponge
was filled with cherries and ganache
danced upon by retro ballet dancers.
thanks mr t...
despite it's blocky chocky appearance!
have a happy week...
