I was going to entitle this post "Sunday Blessed Sunday", but then though that it sounded as though I was going to start on a religious rant, which certainly isn't my style. But happy Sabbath to those of you who celebrate. :)
It's nice and cool and rainy here today, so I'm looking forward to doing lots more juicy blue blanky work today after a short stint on the puter.
A few photos to share.
This little fella I'm very proud of, it's taken months watering and protecting from the harsh sun to actually get this little sprout. It's going to be an avocado tree when it grows up. The witchlet was very excited to see it. I was going to give up on the seed about a month ago, and dug it up only to discover that a huge root had erupted. Patience and tlc has paid off.
This little guy is one of my regular visitors. It's at the point now that I have parents bringing their babies to feed on my shed. I get all sorts of pigeons and doves, pee-wees and even butcher birds. I also get lorikeets in the winter, but not so much in the summer. I'm hoping to get a photo of the pee-wees having their daily bath, they're so cute.
Also my boss (who is a 29 year old Russian boy) was making fun of my crocheting and crafting skills in general, so I will be decorating his desk with these tomorrow. I'm also going to make him a pair of socks to bring him over to the dark side. He has chosen the yarn so I know it's stuff he will like. Another purchase from yarnomat, which gave me an excuse to buy another yarn from there which I had my eye on. They should arrive Monday or Tuesday and photos will be forthcoming.
My Flat Feet socks are progressing nicely. Part of me wants to knit them up as fast as possible to see what they look like when they are done, and another part of me wants to savour every single stitch because it's just so lovely to work with. Fortunately I have the blanky deadline looming so I'm pretty much having my hand forced y that at the moment. And yet another part of me wants to buy up every square of Flat Feet yarn I can find because they are just so pretty! There's a sock club running for the USA and Canada, but yet again, nothing for us poor old Aussies. I've emailed Conjoined Creations begging, so we'll see if I get any suggestions.
Also, I've discovered the Sticks and String podcast. David is a man who knits, who lives outside of Sydney and podcasts about it. How wonderful to find an Aussie bloke who does more than drink beer and watch footie.
