Ry wanted the shooter included, and one of the invaders blowing up - phew, found a chart for that too. He wanted a roll brim, so he got one.
Knitting fair isle is fun, perhaps I'll get around to those socks after all.
Fun to knit, and fun to make your children happy, huh?

Finally finished my pretty Pioneer top. The crochet edging scared me for weeks, but at least I knew hdc meant half double crochet - I just had no idea how to do it! The yarn is an alpaca/silk blend by Misti Alpaca and the colourway is called Foxtail, how could I resist?

The Starship Enterprise!
Is that a cool space age fin or what? Actually it's a Bernina, Bernina, so (sew?) easy simple and versatile. I feel like such a traitor, I've always been an Elna girl.
Next time, knitting!

Well, actually that's my daughter, but perhaps we find ourselves in our children as well.
My children understand me, there is nothing better than looking for treasure on the beach - in the rocks, in the sand. I love the mystery - will you find the perfect shell, or an empty noodle packet off a Korean fishing trawler? This is Makara Beach on a totally out of character calm day, always feels like the ends of the earth although it's only 20 minutes drive from the city. Mostly rubbish we found that day - car tyres, plastic bags, broken bottles (we weren't the first teenagers, and looks like we weren't the last, to spend nights in that falling down concrete bunker).
I live near the sea of course, but hopefully not too near. I've been doing a lot of sad thinking about tsunamis this week - I think we'll need to head for higher ground if a 6 metre monster ever heads our way at 500kph.
So there ya go, my first post. Next time..... knitting!
