It's time to leave the house

It's been a very quiet week around here. I'm still coughing, but am counting myself as well, because I'm completely over being sick. Hanging around the house has given me a chance to really work on my German Stocking, which is good, because this is definitely not something I could knit drunk or distracted. As with all Cookie A patterns it is well written and clearly charted, but there are a lot of things going on at once.
I am knitting with Wollmeise for the first time. The colours are beautiful - prettier than the picture above - and it knits up into a lovely smooth fabric, but it is a little bit splitty. This has been exacerbated by how tightly I ended up knitting that cable.

Anyway, Leon and I are off to Ballarat for a wedding, where I am going to wear my party dress and my recently completed Swallowtail Shawl.
