We had a lovely time in Armidale. It s such a pretty town. And it was in all its autumn splendour while we were there. Each street vied to be more beautiful than the next.
And for water starved eyes such as mine, it was wonderful to see green lawns, flowing rivers and creeks and even glorious waterfalls!
I didn't get much time to knit. Partly because we were very busy looking around and partly because I got sick and spent a day in bed. Imagine a whole day in bed and unable to knit - what a waste.
Still, I did manage to knit this wide cabled headband. I have wanted a headband to keep my ears warm for sometime but have refrained from knitting one because most woolen things against my face makes me itch. I was bemoaning this fact to Spinneroo (on Ravelry) the other day and she very generously gave me some of her own handspun Finn to try.
Now I just need the time to take it on a walk.
While in Armidale I went into the fantastic WOW Wool on Wheels yarn store and indulged a wee bit. I bought a skein of Kaalund silk in Magnolia and I've already cast on for the Three Sisters Scarves #3.
