First time for everything

I have resisted creating a blog but all the time spent on Ravelry has worn me down. So here goes...

This blog will probably be about knitting (lots of it), the garden and the bush, bird watching and reading. Oh, and most importantly, the weather. I am a total weather junkie. Woke up to glorious rain this morning and then sat in the mist until close to lunch time. After lunch we (Mom and Bruce) went for a walk along our road and the smell was heaven. Everything is warm and damp - an unusual state for our neck of the woods.

Now to knitting. I tried to get my mother to knit herself a pair of felted clogs but she is not enjoying it much so I've offered to knit them for her. It has to be done before she goes back to South Africa in February - plenty of time right? In the meantime I'm trying to get her Christmas present done but knitting in secret is not easy and it's taking me far too long. My public knitting at the moment is the Pretty as a Peacock. This is a great pattern and I'm really enjoying it.

Welcome Amanda! I know it's hard to resist. I have to say the blog thing has an addictive quality (kind of like the knitting) - I will be tuning in.

Did you ever get your package from us?
