The comedy festival started yesterday and I'm really excited about it. The last two years Leon and I have spent a week in Adelaide attending the Adelaide Fringe festival, and both years I have knitted ( knit, knat?) Leon's winter scarf while there. This year we didn't go to Adelaide, and so are seeing a LOT of shows in the Melbourne Comedy Festival. It's pretty much going to take over the next month, but who can complain about that much fun?
What this means though is that I will be catching the bus to work more often than usual, and hanging about in pubs, queues and various venues. So I cast on for the Lettuce Pullover. It’s a very simple stocking stitch in the round jumper, a relief after all the lace I have been knitting recently. What makes this special is the yarn - Malabrigo lace, in a colour called polar morn, which is blue grey with a pink tinge. Stunning. This mindless knit should be the perfect project for the next three weeks of comedy madness. Don't expect any finished projects for the next month or so, it's going to be all about the funny.
