I am off to a Stitch ‘n Bitch get together tonight. The whole point of the Stitch ‘n Bitch is to get together with various other knitters and do some knitting in public – usually a cafe or pub. This is a big and brave step for me as my very clumsy knitting technique is really one that should be kept well away from groups and vulnerable eyeballs and my scarves are lumpy and embarrassing. Despite all that I am really looking forward to it as I have been enjoying the book and the Melbourne mailing list for the last couple of weeks and it will be great to see some old friends and put some faces to names.
Other good things about today were that I got a haircut that I really needed and that I love and I discovered that I have won a Bloggie for best Australian and New Zealand weblog! Thank you if you nominated or voted for loobylu. I am chuffed. Do yourselves a favour and check out the other nominees and also make sure you have a look around at the other Australian blogs of which there are now absolutely masses of good ones.
