Living is having ups and downs
and sharing them with friends
In Western Australia we are having a long weekend to celebrate Labour Day and I’m going to use the extra day to the fullest. The weekend started off with the markets on Saturday, and we couldn’t have asked for better conditions.
Beautiful weather that was marvelous for strolling around to browse, crowds of people, the music softly drifting around the markets and meeting up with many of the friends I don’t get to see otherwise. Also meeting up with the friends I do see....especially the ratbag members of the Ag Society! lol
There were some scary, frightening things at the markets too. You can see her from here!!! Chuckle chuckle
Actually you will notice there is an empty space in the owl basket....that scary girl had great success with her knitted owls, they were such a hit with the young folk.
I’m making sure we have enough baby items for the coming winter season to sell at the markets as well....we ran out last year!!!!
Here I have made some rather cute little booties with a picot edge on the bottom. I’m thinking I really love that pattern.
A friend of mine gave me some leftover balls of yarn recently and I devoured them quickly. The texture of the yarn was just so lovely to knit with that I couldn't stop myself, I had to keep knitting until it was all knitted up. Now that doesn't sound like me. lol Many thanks Chris, you're a doll.
I started knitting a sweater for myself last week and this is how far I have come with it. The back, front, one sleeve done and the last sleeve almost done. The pattern was made with little caps for sleeves so I have just invented my own sleeve pattern, that has worked out very nicely thank you.
Do you like the cuff pattern? I want the ruffle look for this winter season so I thought this is the perfect time to start.
I’m off now to get into some skulduggery and stir some of my household up. I’ve already pecked away at hubby (and he truly enjoyed being nagged?!!) Well I enjoyed it anyway. I have my son Brandon in my sights now...I’m just going enjoy it I know.
Beaming heaps of love and kisses to my mates Neville and Chris. Stay strong guys, luv ya heaps.
Fiona.....you just try and stay out of trouble. lol
Ciao for now,
