I did lots of knitting things. Went to s&b on Saturday, it was a small group because of the Easter break but that meant I could talk more! There were four of us, and we exchanged life stories. I have only been a few times so it was fascinating to find out more about the lives of the local stitch and bitchers. Two of the girls had studied medicine, one in Paris and one at Sydney uni. One is a GP and the other is a biomedical engineer with four children. One had survived cancer. Colectively we had worked in every continent in the world as well as some pretty remote outback towns. I could have listened for hours! We had a great conversation about private vs public education, the health system and so on - very highbrow!
While I was there I got a call from Donni, who was in Cooma at the Ashford woolshed looking at the spinning wheels, roving, handspun yarns and dyes, wondering if I wanted her to bring me back something. She bought me two big skeins of laceweight corriedale and a rainbow wool dye kit.
I finished the stole - blocked it and here it is!
I finished that pesky sock!
I started a scarf and hat set for Blair at 11:30pm Saturday night and she wore it the next morning
Donni dropped the Ashford booty off on Monday and I tye-dyed it Monday night
I read the papers, cooked delicious meals, played good mummy to the urchins, went out for lunch with my family, and joined a swanky gym!
I love it when a plan comes together.
