I was suppose to be on the road

We have tried on two occasions to go to the Clare Valley for an extended weekend.  Even had the same accommodation booked, and both times have had to cancel as the DH is sick.  He gets colds easily, and no sooner has a sniffle or sore throat, and ends up with a chest infection.  So, we cancelled again.  It is getting a bit embarrassing with the accommodation, but they are so nice about it.

Instead of driving, and sitting by an open fire, I decided to work on the pattern for the 8th part of the Tiptoe Through the Tulips digital BOM.  I wrote this pattern about 10 years ago, and I am finding better ways to say the same thing now.  This is the 3rd and final border, then just one more part to go next month.
Now that I am up to date with all my "must do" things I have got the knitting needles out again.  I started on a pair of socks the other night.  I have a whole drawer of winter socks and I just love making them with beautiful yarns.

This NORO yarn is made in Japan, and a mixture of 70% wool and 20% nylon.  There is going to be a fair bit left over, so I am thinking I might even get a pair of socks or mittens out of it for my granddaughter.

We are finally starting to feel the winter weather is upon us.  I know it does not get really cold here, as it does in some parts of the world, but we acclimatise to where we are, and it does feel cold now.  Hope I can avoid the winter bugs as I am far too busy to get sick!


  1. sorry you missed out on your 'Getaway' to Clare. Hope John is OK xx

  2. Hope the next Getaway happens! Loved seeing the border photo of your quilt....except for a couple fabrics, we seem to have the same stash (actually collection is a preferred word these days!)
