what was that again?

I'm now part of the way down the leg of the second sock in the colours shown in the post below below.  It's very easy knitting and knits up very evenly.

I've also cast on in Bendigo 8 ply Classic for this lovely shawl.  It casts on four stitches on the knit row and a stitch each end on the purl row. This makes a curved finish to the neckline which should stay on the shoulders well.  I'm making the biggest size to wrap around well.

Now, for your Friday afternoon, end of week amusement.

These three examples of real estate speak are all taken verbatim from the enormous real estate section of our local paper.  I've waded through one hundred pages of that section this week.  No, these are not typos on my part.  Ads just as they appear in the paper.  Two of them were written by two of the largest agent franchises in Sydney, the third by a slightly smaller group.

this home is testament to feeling of village and a place for those with a penchant for restored homes with little compromise  I can see what they are trying to say, but really!

...designed to embrace a wealth of northern light across an array of striking architectural flourishes... Perhaps this author writes epic poetry in spare time?

with an imprestated style and a blisffully welckoming ambience this exemplary residence offers modern confidante buying What does this rubbish mean?  Imprestated?? Welckoming?? Confidante??

Thank you for making my shawl! I hope you post finished photos on Ravelry when you are done. I would love to see it.
