I just recieved a book in the mail that I had ordered from the Book Depository (how I love that shop!!). It is a lovely book full of beautiful lace shawls.
I do think i will take the plunge and make a shawl out of here, and I do think that once I have done one, i think I will be making many more. Although I would like to be able to knit as fast as a certain friend of mine (you know who you are) but that is not going to happen. So it will be slow and steady wins the race. Like a lot of things I think i have to do it to understand it.
We have just gotten back from a quick family holiday to Queensland. We dont go away on holidays very often (if ever) but with a son studying for his VCE it was a good time to have a holiday away without disturbing his studies. We had a great time, the weather was fantastic. We did find out however that when stung by a bluebottle (jellyfish), my son tends to blister (ouch!!)
we did the usual theme parks, had a great time. My hubby and my youngest son did all the rollercoasters and rides, and I mean ALL of them. My other son and I watched!!
Rides like this:
So now it is back to work and school and all the running around that that involves. It was good to have time out though. I think we all need to take some time away, and recharge the batteries every so often.
