Then started a shawl based roughly on a couple of shawls where theres a row of of eyelets at the colours changes,its handspun Bunny/merino again from Charleys beautiful fibres! I have over two full needles and may have to look at swapping over to circs soon! I got heaps done in an hour and if it wasnt for RSI starting in my left shoulder I think I would have finished the ball! There roughly 600m so it should be a largish one! Very soft and very light!!

Today,the last day I finally feel a bit more relaxed,Ive done afair bit of spinning,nearly up to the next pattern stage of the lovely swallow tail pattern, fingers crossed I have enough wool.On top of this Ive finished 2 pairs of socks for the firefighters and one adult size SES beanie.On the list for these holidays in the terms of time rather being at home, on leave yeah right,I have 2 child size beanies ,SES ones(the adult one was very large), and Kogo Beanies which Im going to find a an aran pattern and knit up what they sent,yucky acrylic but hey it was donated..with the thicker doubled yarn at least it will knit faster as Im behind in these charity knit projects...
Off to Toodyay next month,5 weeks and counting,I hope to have at least my first swallow tail done so I can wear it,a new bag for my Victoria Louet Wheel after the Rodent had managed to eat a fair portion of its base,I still love him though!
I haven't any piccies of projects as yet but will endevour this week..
On the up side, have to add something ,hey, otherwise its boring!!Our car has had a new coat of paint and is looking swishy,Im taking extreme car,B has waxed it and polished the old dear,put new batteries in the remotes,she under cover and behind the flash new gates that are also remote controlled.Read that? remote gates,I hit the open button as I approach the haouse and the door grind open ,I drive in and hit the button again even before I turn on the key and I inside out of the weather,the rabbit hasnt worked it out yet and the dog is amused.One of Bs toys that I actually enjoy playing with!! On the other hand it means Ill have to ride or walk to work as much as possible and Im so afraid of damaging the new paint work!!Have a gecko here and check out the number plate again...
Anyhow heres to our wee Bilby,one of my fav native Aussies,I really love them all but heres the occasion to greet these little blokes!!!

Anyhoo,we got the tires fitted,left Kal came all the way home to pick up the bits we forgot,important stuff like credit cards,gave me an opportunity to check oldest son again as hed had a nasty gash to his head the night before,he refused to go with us on this epic weekend,it really needed stitches but the Nurses Station was shut and the stupid Health Line was useless...
We got to Southern Cross at about 2 ish,had the most god awful hamburger,(Id been hanging for one at Merriden) talked to mates at the tire service there,Porridge booked a spot to learn to spin at the Southern Cross Show in a few months....
Frog Rock near Southern Cross
The man made wall around the top of the rock was designed to to catch water for the local water supply and still supplements the towns supplies,the whole time we were there was spent on the rock checking out the rock formations etc,It was well worth the trip and even being late to get to Wagin.The best part of this trip was the fact we werent really fussed on time,w just drove around...the bake shop at Hyden was wonderful too,yummy brekky there before we headed off.
I liked the fact it was quiet and there werent a heap of people roaming everywhere,enough to show it was a fav stop for tourist like us though. We plan more trips like this in the future and hope to go again to Wagin and towards Mt Barker and Albany.We still looking at farming areas to buy a farm of some kind and we wont know until we do go and have a look!!!
Ill be back with Part 2 later...
