Fly by blogging

I have been writing blog posts in my head for then past week, but haven't had a chance to sit down and commit them to the wonder that is the World Wide Web. I nearly sat down and wrote this when I got in last night, but I thought 2 am and drunk might make for an "interesting" post. The comedy festival is in full swing, and Leon and I are making the most of it. While I won't give you a blow by blow account of each show we have seen, there have been 2 fibre highlights: we saw Cal Wilson, who at the beginning of her show asked if anyone knits. I said I did, and that I had my knitting with me.Cal invited me to knit through her show! While she wasn't the funniest act I've seen, I certainly got a lot of knitting done. And Sam Simmons had a huge picture of a goat as his back drop. Ahh fibre.
Because I have been catching the bus to work and hanging about it bars I have made some progress on the Lettuce jumper:
The colour is actually divine and when I take proper shots I'll make sure it shows up. On Tuesday night I was sitting by the Yarra and the setting sun tinting the blue sky with pink: the exact shade of this yarn.

And lastly, here is a sign I thought was funny, from the toilets outside the festival hub, which is Melbourne Town Hall. You may or may not, enjoy my toilet humour:

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!


Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
