This Week...

...one was in Sydney being led astray by this Mad Woman for a perfectly memorable afternoon...














...with an unusually energetic hike all the way across the city from Oxford Street to York Street.

It's a long way and me thinks The Mad Woman's Lovely Legs were testing me own Long Legs in a sort of Leggy Duel.

Now Long doesn't necessarily mean Lithe, and Old Long Legs here is suffering a serious case of Shin Shock.






But all for a good cause.

Norro Sock wool and Morris Empire 2 ply.

(See arty farty photo.)


One is a virgin 2 plier. But tonight's the night. One is excited and a little nervous too. Wish one luck. The lace pattern scarf and 5mm Knit Picks await.
















Hmmm. One is wondering if this is the reason the fronts of one's lower legs are really hurting - still)

OMG! U2 on the loose?????

Sounds like grrl would have loved the energy boost from your very vivacious presence. Very pleased for the both of you that you could have a playdate.

As to the lace...hmmmnn...one also has knitpro needles and Annie Blatt cobweb stuff and Victorian Lace Knitting pattern book but one is terrified and allows oneself to be distracted by all sorts of extraneous paraphenalia.

Love the shoe shot!!! Say 'hi' to grrl for me!

Thanks for a great afternoon and I had three false starts with my scarf too.
