The family and I got back from Melbourne last Monday. It was a good trip! We were there for hubby’s brother’s wedding, and it was a very nice wedding too. We rented a townhouse in the bayside suburb of Williamstown.
Unfortunately not much knitting happened during the hols. I did bring along the lacey rib scarf with me, but in the end I was sucked in to a good book instead. That’s when we’re not attending the various get-togethers with the relatives or catching up with my new sister in law.
But I do have a new FO. I realise that I haven’t been talking about this one in the blog. No particular reason, probably just because it never quite looked very interesting. I’ve been knitting on a feather and fan stole in the background for the last month or so. I used KnitPick‘s free Andean Treasure Shawl pattern, except that I made it narrower. I used 3 balls of HomeMaker Clinker yarn from Kmart in ‘cream’. As with all things lace, the crumpled up mess turned into a beautiful drapey stole after blocking. It even complemented so well the outfit that I was wearing for the wedding.
