Never again

One is never again wearing striped pants.

One had no idea it made one seem head and shoulders taller than everyone else.

And besides - one feels it might be inviting that old foe - eccentricity - matching trousers with tea cosies.

One might take style lessons from the most lovely Monica Trapaga (far left) of Play School fame, Jazz singing fame and now "She's Leaving Home" book fame...

and Joanna Savill, Foody Fairy Fabuloso (Director, Sydney Food Festival and Presenter, Food Lover's Guide to Australia)

We three did the Knit One, Bake One: Books that celebrate life - In Conversation at the Byron Bay Writer's Festival.  Thanks gals. Twas heaps fun.

One is prepared to do ANYTHING to spread the word about knitting in the round on two circular needles - even don purple Fair Isle while sporting black and silver stripes at Kniterary, errr Literary festivals.

Perhaps one is subconsciously getting ready to appear on zeez blog while visiting New York in October.







Enough about Byron

Bowral and Sydney also done and dusted.  Watch this space.

is that a shawl that the lady in the center of this picture is wearing? The light green? Very interesting.

First think I noticed is your half sleeve jumper! Almost there. I wished I could be there to hear you speak. For some one who can knit like you I think you are a great speaker. Will wait until you come to Melbourne next time. You know when? (I finished one of your teacosy and it's up my blog right now) - Hugs Nat

Puh-LEASE don't finish your sleeve prior to visiting the US. It is SUCH a good look. Esp with the striped trousers. They need a bit of a fresh outlook in NYC methinks...

Now girls - yous are all getting a bit excited on my behalf.

The reference to Advanced Style blog was just a JOKE - there is no invitation to show off one's particular style there.

One just thought that if one was walking about New York City in one's crazy pants and Ari Seth was out and about with his camera - but one is secretly hoping that he would think me far too young to qualify anyway.

But yes New York City in October - Need every bit of wool store info please for peering into and spending money at.

Lurve your verve girl! Proudly wearing circular needles on one's arm is doing much for the cause!!

I think you look GREAT Ms GPB! Statuesque, eccentric and eclectic. Anyway, you were the ONLY one present who would have been able to get away with vertically striped duds.

And that jumper is coming along nicely.......

You are head and shoulders above the rest of us ;-)

At least you look gorgeous in striped pants, they do nothing for my curvaceous nether regions! Love the circular needle look, I can't put them down either :-)
