The balance restored

Things do come right after a fashion, as this weekend has shown. I wasn't expecting to get to R&L as the first Soccer match of the season, followed by a niece's birthday party, had priority.

Fortunately for me the Soccer field was too wet to play on and as the party was at Bondi I thought a slight deviation up the M3 to Gordon might be excusable. This meant I had to take the young Dragon along to a 'boring knitting party' but with the help of an "Asterix and Obelix" book as well as a Birthday card to fill out I managed to get in at least 45 minutes of Knitting Group exposure before the boredom factor kicked in.

A good number of people were there, including David, Lara and Mark, Sally, Meg, Pamela and others. Apparently more knitters arrived after I dragged the young boy away from the Sewing Thread display. I had time to admire Meg's Loopy Mohair Trim Sweater- she has put a lot of time and care into its construction; Pamela's Candle Flame Shawl in 2/28 lace weight silk yarn and David's lovely little jumper for baby Bella.

Looks like it was a great knit session! I went over to check out that Candleflame shawl and it's gorgeous. I've done the pattern several times, but that one puts mine to shame!
