Yes, that was rather a long silence. It’s been an odd summer – much more rain and much more thinking than I’m used to. Many deep and heartfelt thanks to the real-life people who sat through the thinking and the details and patted shoulders and offered tissues and advice. The consequence of all that thinking is, I’m moving cities sometime in the next 2 months. From Australia’s biggest city to the actual capital city, which is much smaller. Not that momenteous, you might think, but it’s all that stuff that welled up when I had to decide. All that “where-is-my-life-going” and “is-this-it-is-this-as-good-as-it-gets” and “what-do-I-really-want-to-do” and “am-I-cutting-off-my-options” and “what-matters” stuff.
So. That’s where I’ve been. “Yeah, whatever, we’re here for the craft, not the heartache” say the readers. Then craft you shall have. Look! I made two hats and a scarf.
:: hat for my brother in France. Improvised pattern, JoSharp 8ply wool.
:: hat and scarf for Bee in Holland. Improvised patterns, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino chunky.
