Ailsa's Indian Summer Yarn club has two WIPs for it. I'm on the second Shantaram sock and really like the way this is knitting up. There's also the absolutely gorgeous 50/50 merino and silk in deep purple. I'm almost finished the garter stitch part of her capelet pattern and have about ten rows before the patterning. This yarn is amazing. It has a beautiful sheen to it and has taken the different purples in the dye really well. It's a pleasure to knit. It feels fantastic as it moves through the fingers and knits very evenly. I can see more of this in the future.
The mirrors at left of photo are my wardrobe doors. I'd rather not have a mirrored wardrobe but that's what is here. I've never had doors on a wardrobe which operate so smoothly. It doesn't matter which one is in front and they slide very smoothly. The door at right leads into my bathroom. Three bedrooms here and three bathrooms as well as a fourth toilet in garage.
Witty Knitter's area from here as it's over the crest of a hill. However the spire from the Hunter Baillie Presbyterian church in Johnson Street, Annandale, is quite clear. We had a very good view of much of the New Year's Eve fireworks, although we were all so tired we went to bed after the 9:00 show.
Now we're more unpacked and are very happy here, I hope to get more knitting done. Arthritis in fingers has been bad and I have felt bad myself about knitting when the others have been so busy unpacking painting etc. I've been busy providing cold drinks, getting meals, stacking and unsatcking dishwasher and other mundane matters.
The location is very convenient. Ten minutes walk up the road on one side of the trainline leads to the Enmore Theatre on Enmore Road. The same time on this side of the line brings me up at Newtown old Town Hall or I could cut around the back and come up to the police station and the pub there. Another couple of minutes and I'd be at the Dendy movie theatre. It's about six minutes to Stanmore station and a couple of coffee shops I haven't yet tried and about twelve minutes down to Parramatta Road or to Stanmore Maccas if I was absolutely and utterly desperate.
