...one was in Sydney being led astray by this Mad Woman for a perfectly memorable afternoon...
...with an unusually energetic hike all the way across the city from Oxford Street to York Street.
It's a long way and me thinks The Mad Woman's Lovely Legs were testing me own Long Legs in a sort of Leggy Duel. Now Long doesn't necessarily mean Lithe, and Old Long Legs here is suffering a serious case of Shin Shock.
But all for a good cause.

One is a virgin 2 plier. But tonight's the night. One is excited and a little nervous too. Wish one luck. The lace pattern scarf and 5mm Knit Picks await.

One is extremely pleased with oneself.
One attempted red lace socks once before.
There were no photographs of the back and sides on THAT occasion.
There is still of course the little matter of a hole at the point where the heel meets the gusset.
Any tips anyone?
Note to Margaret: If you are watching - the pattern is from Vogue Knitting's The Ultimate Sock Book - an all time favourite of mine.

And then there are these.
Deliciously irresistible from the lunchtime sales in the dining hall at Sturt Winter School, Mittagong. What will I make what will I make what will I make. Perhaps I'll just keep balling them and hanking them, balling them and hanking them for a while.
