We’re smack bang in the middle of some GLORIOUS weekend weather. It’s the inlaws’ last day with us before they head off to New Zealand and then home to England and I know things will get a bit tricky this evening. Before all the tricky we have a day at the beach and a barbecue (we’ve entirely indoctrinated the visiting Poms to the joys of perfection-grilled kangaroo). It’ll be a day of lazy and all about the kids and maybe a stitch or two in between for me.
My girl and I are loving the collaboration happening with all the red up there (see, we’re not really up to much mischief – it’s not like we’re yarnbombing a traffic light or stuff).
I suspect, I have pushed things a little far with the latest Olearia, broken ALL the rules. I’ve, um, run out of staples. The Olearia pattern runs over quite some number of pages, and the page numbers didn’t print and there are quite a few style options. I sort of lost track of the pages and where I was and after a few days, thought I should maybe consult that pattern properly. I’m happy to say I’m now back on track, after a shrugging of the shoulders and the tacking on of EIGHTY missing stitches into the fifth last row of the bodice section. About thirty rows too late and possibly somewhat abrupt.
Oh, ye of little faith.
