A friend is celebrating a significant birthday today. N’aw.

I knitted her a very special shawl in the most beautiful silk in a stunning deep orange colouring.

In a regular review of all things delicious on Etsy, I loved this little group of colours:

I adore the names given to these yarns!

I like to make beanies for Canteen from yarn leftover from other projects.

I thought I’d put these two colours together, not expecting them to work.

But they did.

Knitting. I love it.

Especially knitting a gift.

Without the studio, it is a distinct possibility that there will be a knit-craft-explosion in this home.

Colouring

I spent a lovely time at the NGV International today colouring wooden beads with my friend and her delightful daughter … we made necklaces as part of the workshop situated in the Meredith Turnbull exhibit.

We added our triangular piece to the wall of others … while little Miss proudly wore her blue square masterpiece home (after dancing outrageously fantastically in the room with the lights on the floor, behind the gold doors).
