My friend Josh came to stay, and he's been sleeping in the study, which is where the computer is, which explains why there was no post this weekend. We've had a fantastic weekend. Josh has been to Melbourne three or four times before, but he's never been to St Kilda beach. We took him there. We also took him to Cranbourne, so he got the full spectrum of Melbourne life!
All the while I've been knitting away on a scarf for Leon's Winter Set (2016). While it's warm here right now, and likely to remain so, Josh has set the mood quite well. He's just come back from working in Antarctica and has been showing us photos and telling us stories about ice and cold and penguins. He's heading back to Antarctica later this year. Maybe I should knit him a hat before then.
