I don't mind making hats in different sizes. It's a bit of variety in the knitting. Heads come in different shapes and sizes and what fits one, won't fit another. The current knit has eighty stitches and blocks of alternating purl and plan stitches. I'd like to do some lace patterns and think they would probably be OK. Son is not so sure, as the chemo makes the skin very sensitive to sunlight and the scalp can burn easily, even in winter.
It's finally turning to winter. The nights are getting decidedly chilly and the other morning it was only 4° C here, which is cold for close to the sea in Sydney. I have seen it colder but not often. Today is beautiful, very sunny although the morning was cold. We've had some needed rain as well.
Last week I bought a large rug online for a very reasonable price. It is to go in the lounge room and is 2.5 by 3.3 metres. It will cover quite a bit of my plain grey carpet which was the original installation. Today is Wednesday. Last Friday I had an email from the courier company that it would be her yesterday. No rug, no email, no phone call, no message. Not happy Jan. That is quite a few days to arrange the delivery and the courier firm had it in their possession on the Friday. I will give it till later this afternoon before I make a call. I hate chasing stuff up. This company is not the one run by Auspost which has a very bad reputation, but is not much above it.
My son sent this picture from his local Central Coast train station which is being upgraded. There are many notices around, most warning of danger of glass, equipment etc. The Transport Minister is known here as Our Glad. She is fussy about such things as train guards wearing trousers and not shorts. She does not like knobbly knees. Trains running on time or cancellations do not seem to be as important to her. However, any way one looks at this photo, something is wrong. No proofing apparently. I am surprised that "maintenance" has been done correctly.
