I'm planning a train trip to the city (about an hour both ways from my place), so I'm sure to get a lot more accomplished today.
Yesterday was a real mooch around at home day - curled up on the couch, cheap weekly DVD's, etc - I'm sure you get the picture! I had a hankering for a small project, one that could be all but finished by the end of the night...
Neat little pattern, one I'm sure everyone knows, from Knitty. I used one ball of stash wool (8ply, unbanded, prob Big W?) and used all but 30cm of it.
I'm so happy with them, I made the Man look at them on my fetching hands every 2 minutes or so, by discreetly and subtly moving them in his face, hee hee!
I'm drawn to red at the moment, I expect in a reaction to the sea of grey I see everywhere I look in Melbourne at the moment - not just the weather, but the fashions, the homewares, the appliances...
I love grey in all it's shades, particularly when it releases a glimpse of lilac, or blue lying underneath, but I especially love it with a deep rich blue-based red accent.
My baby girl seems to have inherited this little fetish, and has taken these school holidays to dressing top-to-toe in vermilion - lovely!
In other news, the ladees over at 62 cherry and nikkishell have put together a new 'zine, and I've made a small contribution to the first edition! It's about making time for the little things in life, and all that that entails. Go over to mixtapezine and check it out.
I also met up with Katie over the weekend and caught up on her news (published pattern in Yarn, no less!) It's so nice to spend a few hours with someone else who has this love of knitting, to share ideas and offer advice - I always come away from our catch-ups having learnt something new. Thanks for sharing your knitty knowledge, Katie!
Now I'd better scoot - those trains don't run so often after 9am!
Happy week everyone - stay warm and dry!
