Crochet

Last weekend was spent at Smiggins Holes in the Snowy Mountains with Lynell and Robyn so that meant a roadtrip - 6 hour drive and fortunately I didn't have to drive. Did a fair amount of crocheting on the way there until it was too dark.


Once we were through Jindabyne the driving conditions deteriorated rapidly and it was a pretty hairy drive up to the lodge.  This was the scene through my bedroom window on Saturday morning.


Lynell was keen to go for a ski so Robyn and I rugged up to walk down the hill to the ski slopes with her.  Mum had made each of us a beanie and they were very much appreciated.  The wind was bitterly cold and snow fell all day.


We ventured out again later in the afternoon to go to Mt Blue Cow but couldn't see any of the view because of the weather conditions, so travelled back to Perisher for an affogato.  The wind howled all Saturday night and conditions seemed to be worse on Sunday morning, so we decided to pack up and head home via a few stops on the way - Wild Brumby Schnapps Distillery, Bredbo Christmas Barn,

THE most fabulous Christmas shop
lunch at Bredbo Pancake Cafe and then afternoon tea at Trappers Bakery in Goulburn - a very enjoyable 10 hour drive home with lots of crocheting on the way.

As well as the basketweave scarf, I took along ChaCha's little pinafore and made some good progress on that.  Finished it off last night and so pleased with it.  Size 2 with a bit of extra length so should fit next winter.


This week was extremely busy with another quick trip away and a day in Sydney with my other little sweetheart who was unwell.  Thankfully he's recovered and full of beans.


Lynell and I are going to the Opera House tonight to "Beatles Back2Back" - "St Peppers" and "Abbey Road" albums performed by Russell Morris, Jack Jones, Kav Temperley and Jon Allen. It's going to be fantastic!

No time for sewing over the last couple of weeks - hopefully next week.
