If you hear strange noises

..be not alarmed. It is just me running around my house making incoherent noises of joy over my new SOCK TOTE. It is so ASTONISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL, I think it deserves capital letters and exclamation marks!!! A huge thank you to the talented and generous 2paw! Unfortunately I could not get a very good photo because someone kept getting in the way.

I had a great Accounting lesson today. It was about Depreciation and our teacher brought a large purple toy car which she waved about excitedly while explaining the capitalized costs of new assets such as motor vehicles. Every now and again she would accidently set it off and it would starting playing a jaunty tune, that sounded suspiciously like "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!" It was rather surreal to be having Playschool flashbacks in that particular class.

Ash in the Stash

Miss Darkside wanted to share this pic of Ash napping on the stash basket(and her own photographic genius!)

Yesterday, I went to sit on my favourite bench by TAFE that overlooks the Cenotaph. As I sat down something caught my eye. Free Book! It was a Bookcrossing book. I have never spotted one in the wild before so it was kinda cool. However it was a romance so I left it for a more appreciative reader.

Long time, No see

In my usual contrary fashion I have finally made a Panta...just in time for Summer! Still, I'm very happy with it. It's nice and cosy and doesn't look as daggy on me as I expected. You may have to squint a little at the dark, blurry photo and pretend it's a Magic Eye kinda deal to confirm this.

Miss Darkside kindly frogged my disasterous attempt at the Falling Leaves sock. After listening to me moan about how I couldn't stand the sight of it, she took the yarn home promising to make me a Jaywalker. Thanks Suzi!!

I also dug my half finished Pippi Long Sock out of the knitting depths. I had managed to drop a whole bunch of stitchs and panicked and hid it away. Turned out picking them up was not anywhere near as traumatic as I thought and I knitted the foot in a couple of hours. Now I have four first socks needing partners.

There is just one problem...

Friends, I'm going to my knitting chair. I may be some time.
