FO's, WIP's and SEX!

I have just been made aware of the term SEX - Stash Enhancing eXpedition - and I love the expression (thanks Tania). Friday saw Sam and I head down to sunny (and windy) Geelong for a knit-along being run in the name of Reusable Nappy Week. We met up with Tania and a mob of the Geelong girls for a lovely gossip and knit. To be honest I didn't knit a thing. I cast on a soaker with Rohan sitting on my knee and it was so shoddily done that I frogged it. Georgie did a fabulous job of organising and it was fantastic to meet her, Megsie, Tracee, Mary and the others (sorry I am terrible with names).

The knit-along turned into a SEX with side visits to Stitchery Blue (once Sam and I finally found it) and a little fabric store that Georgie worded me up on.


This Tyrol is destined to become a nice, cosy scarf for me. It is a ways down the TTD list but the holidays do start for me next Friday...

I am not sure which of these fabrics are destined for the store and which might end up as skirts for me. If my regular readers see anything that especially piques their interest please drop me an email and we will talk. ;)

Now for my other bits and pieces. I have finished my bolero! Here it is on the floor and dodgily modelled by me to prove that it actually fits! Excuse the multiple chins, bleary eyes and dopey look. It was so close to finished Thursday night that I stayed up to finish it off. It could still do with a good blocking but I am fairly happy with it.


Lastly, my WIP, a curly purly soaker for Rohan. Given that this is the weekend's effort I am pretty happy with my progress. Gotta love 10ply and larger needles!

If you got this far. thanks for reading my mad rantings! Have a great week.
