Ok Katt asked what did I knit for the bathurst weekend, well I have to admit nothing really, lol. First time for everything. Im so bad hey. Normally over Bathurst I make something in total. But not this time. I did wander around picking socks up and knitting a row here and there, but thats it.
Also IN BIG NEWS>>>>>> the spunk has bought us a house in a small wheatbelt town over here called Koorda. about 3 hours from Perth and a pop of 499 including us 3 lol. Settlement is Thursday and we wont be moving for a while. Its a holiday house while we wait the 6 months for the lease to run out here. Anyone near Koorda want a knitting buddy lol. check out the size of my chook run, complete with manderin, orange, peach, pear and apple tree and the usual aussie delight a lemon tree.
