Tea for 2 and 2 for Tea ......
I am still trying to get thru the knitting and well it seems still alot to use up yet and plenty to do hopefully I get there soon.
Not your average knitter a Metalhead and a Ag show entrant
Jacket completed and ready for the next parcel to go. Beanie done in no time at all and ready to meet the booteees that need to wait for the weekend when I can get onto them with a good run. At this stage another set is closely following it in pink. Looks like I will be finished the basic round of stock soon and then gap fill a little more and get onto the shawls soon as well.
I started a pink set and so far have the fronts done today and will be on the back of it tomorrow at work. I guess by next week I could be packing another box off to Crookwell again. Alot of this has to do with the fact I can hardly sleep and I am just spending my time knitting instead of reading or anything else. I can knit and watch a dvd atleast. Spending the wee small hours knitting really is not advised it is just my legs wont let me settle into a decent nights sleep so might as well make use of the time.
Last weekend was a tad more productive in other areas than I expected. After a quick trip to Berry to the Fibre Muster to do a drop off and pick up. I was lucky to find a nice suitable driver but later paid back the cost of it. Lunch at the bakery and then it was all action once we got to Bunnings. My nice driver got a Pergola quite cheap and started getting the retaining wall as well. Sunday was a little pricing some more yard detail and then get the wall in and cook roast pork. This was all before a trip back to Bunnings to get more retaining wall to finish it off and then get the pergola up.
All done and I should have taken photos of the 2 guys as muddy as anything from digging the trench and getting the backfill. No dinner was served till they had cleaned up in the shower.
This weekend I have requested a lighter one with less strenous labour from me.
