Scarfy Come Home!..........

It has been so wet up here in the Blue Mountains. We, and half of the mountains, had leaky roofs - our gas fire was leaking down the chimney and out the bottom of the heater.

There has been lots of thunder and electrical storms up here as well as hail. So, I've been off the computer for a while and have been doing some knitting, trying to get through my stash of Noro wool.

I have almost finished a jumper. All I have to do is just sew it together. I'll post about that soon.

I knitted this scarf in two nights. I love Noro wool. I love the bright colours. It is a bit pricey but I love the finished look of the colours. I used Silk Garden, colour way 205 - it's pinks and purples. This pattern, Scarfy Come Home by SpillyJane, is a freebie from Ravelry. This is an easy pattern and knits up so quickly.

There was sun today for the first time in days so we went down the bush track, not far from my place, to take come pictures before Little Lou started to wander off. He was excited as he thought we were going for a bush walk. So, I'm looking a bit serious in a lot of the pictures - there is a stream near by that is flowing very fast from all this rain we have had up here. It's usually a gentle flowing stream. I'm just keeping my eyes on him - he is a very fast little boy. I didn't want him getting to close to the water. I'd like to think I don't look that grumpy all of the time (LOL) - maybe it was being couped up in the house for days. I was feeling all arty-farty and wanted some pictures in the beautiful bush I have surrounding me where I live (and any excuse to get out of the house). :)

I love the colours in the scarf and they are such lovely photos. You must be a fast knitter, to do it in two nights. I usually crochet but just today picked up some knitting needles (for the first time in years) and felt really uncoordinated. I'll have to practice before trying even a scarf!

Very nice! I was wondering how you were all fairing up there in the mountains. Saw a bit of the storms on tv. I think sometimes its good to stay away from the computer for a bit! Just look at your lovely creation! Oh and you don't look grumpy at all, just a little serious. Hugs and smoochies xoxoxox

Hi Anne,
you look gorgeous as always, and so does your knitting! Dad was telling me about all the rain, we have had really humid weather here and I have been missing the mountains. Hope you are all happy and well.
