To Melbourne and back...

Another week where I haven't had the chance to blog. We had a trip to Melbourne to deliver two cars and pick two up from the auctions so that took up Tuesday (getting there) and Wednesday (delivering the cars).

The weather has been terrible - on our way home from Melbourne on Thursday, we passed through Ballarat and it was 6C at 11 o'clock. By the time we got home it was only (c here! Friday was a day of high winds and pouring rain (going almost sideways at times). I think it was about 10C all day!

Whilst in Melbourne, I had plenty of time to sit... and sit... and sit, waiting for Gus to do his deliveries and look at cars at the auction. Lucky I took my Ipad and knitting! I powered my way through this cute dish cloth...

Isn't it sweet? But do you know what? See the amount of yarn left at the top right hand corner? I had 4 stitches to go to cast off and ONE INCH OF YARN LEFT! I nearly cried! Later on, back at our friends house, I re-cast on some of the stitches then borrowed a small length from the 'cast on' tail at the bottom. I just got it finished!

On the way to Melbourne, we witnessed the most amazing rainbow we have ever seen. Gus was ahead of me in another car (yes, we drove two over and two back) and he rang me to say 'Wow!' It was the most brilliantly coloured and hugest rainbow ever! And it was a full arc - we could see both ends and every colour of the spectrum. I will never see anything like it again, ever!

As always, I didn't have my good camera on me, just my Iphone so I apologise for the quality.

  1. Such an amazing rainbow!

    You seem to live dangerously with your knitting. Exactly where in each project do you start feeling anxious about having enough yarn to finish? :) Very clever of you to get it finished after all.

  2. Thanks for the rainbow pics, even if only on the iphone, I have seen a rainbow like that myself and know exactly what colours it was!
