We're spending a few days in Melbourne, then it's off to Tasmania. We will be staying at the Freycinet Lodge, which has been rated one of the 1000 places to see before you die. We end our stay in Sydney. I'm anxious to escape winter for a few weeks (it's the equivalent of August there)!
So, with the trip approaching, you'd think I would be getting prepared this weekend. Not really...went to a wedding last night at the Sofitel Hotel downtown. It was a blast - they had a great band with 5 different singers. Definitely American Idol material. They let me sing a few lines of "Sweet Caroline," which I belted out in my typical tipsy karaoke fashion.
Still trying to figure out the best way to post photos...any suggestions are appreciated!

The pattern is the raglan cardigan from the Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for Beginners Book. I used Rowan Handknit Cotton in red, and it turned out really cute. I also did a spiral rib hat in the same yarn. I will post pics as soon as I figure out how to do that. Both sweater and hat are for my neighbor's new baby due any day now. The yarn was super soft and great to work with, I would definitely make this pattern again.

The blog will not be devoted to anything in particular, but I wanted a space where friends and family could check in and keep tabs on me. I also wanted a space to document my hobbies and interests (knitting, running, reading, cooking, gardening). Stay tuned and check in regularly!
