Well hello there! It's been about 14 days since my last post! Hope you're all well. Melbourne was fun. Though I admit to missing The S and being a bit of a girl about it. However catching up with old friends Al and Di and meeting new friends like Jo, Sooz and Suse was a blast. Getting to squish Pia was also lovely, she's a gorgeous little bebe, so squishy and sweet. Also meeting other crafty bloggers was fun, thanks to Justine and Nikki for organising a great afternoon. Though Justine was a blur most the afternoon running around after us ladies. Thanks Justine, Amitie and Lovely Liz from Broderie. Justine's pics....
I had the pleasure of having dinner with Fran and Emma, we had a great night. You know when you've made a blog friend and you're not sure if in the flesh you'll actually have anything to talk about. Well, we had no problems, both really delightful, fun, witty and intelligent women.
The day before I was due to fly out I decided that I HAD to have a new bag. Pattern adapted from this book and it came together pretty quickly. Fabric and handles from the stash. Photographed on the plane on the way to Melbourne.
Finished some socks, modelled here by S. Can you pic which pose is her's and which is the one I "made" her do? Pattern from My Fashionable Life, but can't find the name of the pattern at the moment. Details, Lorna's Laces, think it's Bittersweet colourway, knit magic loop style on 80cm 2.5mm addi, toe up, short row toes and heels. What more could a sock knitter want? My first lace ever.
The next installment of back-tack will be happening soon peeps, soon. Al and I only had a short amount of time in Melbourne together so we didn't get to chat, but we have plans. So keep your eyes peeled at our blogs and at the back-tack blog.
Now if you'll excuse me I have about 1400 posts to read in my RSS feed. EEEP!
