So what does one do on a glorious sunny dry winter day? I feel guilty saying these are the winter days I enjoy because dry means no rain and no rain is not good for Melbourne (or come to think of it anywhere else in Australia) Anyway it was so good to be sitting outside on the deck enjoying the warmth provided by our clear outside blinds instead of sitting inside trying to keep warm by the fire.
There was the Finishing up/ Making up / Sewing up of a cardigan to be done plus starting another and this was the opportune time to do it. One more for the charity box 🙂
As I sat there knitting I kept having a funny feeling something wasn’t the same yet couldn’t put my finger on it. Then it dawned on me I could see curtains moving in the flats at the back – don’t remember seeing that before. Then I remembered we’d cut a little tree down (a Wattle / Acacia) that had beautiful yellow balls of fluff late in the winter yet grew all straggly and split during a very windy storm earlier in the year and the owners of the flats had lopped some branches off the big gum tree. Senior Moment 🙂
Now about that word – did you know today – the 2nd Saturday in June – is World Wide Knit in Public Day?
Knitters young and old are encouraged to take their craft out of their homes, display it to the world and encourage others to learn the skill.
I didn’t exactly fill the brief properly – I took my knitting outside – but not actually in Public though. However seeing as how my back deck might not be quite as private as it was previously perhaps my effort of neither public nor private could be be called
Knitting in Semi Seclusion 🙂 🙂
