Knit wits

Tonight I went along to a Nikki Gabriel knitting class with my mama at the Harvest Workroom, It was so much fun, I have actually struggled to put my project down so that I can type this post! hehe.

The night was made by the fact that we got to knit in this AMAZING hand screen printed tent decorated with pom poms, made by Nikki herself! Pompoms!!

One of the best things about Nikki's patterns is that they're progressive, so you can wear the garment for a while before you add the next part! I will be wearing the first piece of mine tomorrow as a scarf. My garment is actually shaping up quite quickly and I can't wait to wear it (the 25mm needles are helping!)

Now. . . it's time to get back to the knitting!

I heart surprises!

Last week I had a little birthday. To celebrate I was surprised with a delightfully tasty dinner and a giant bunch of flowers! :) The restaurant was hidden underground, and It felt like we were onto one of Melbourne's many secrets, as I was lead through a tiny unmarked door and down the stairs :)
The whole night was way too cute not to share

Doggie Dates

So A little while ago Tilda had a play date with Barkly.
Doggie dates are ace, there is always a lot of laughing involved!

This is my favorite - little monsters from the deep! (Tilda always has that paw up when she's ready to pounce!)

TT was love struck - I'm not so sure about Barkley!

Needless to say TT and I spent a couple of hours removing sand and getting her dry after this wintery beach date!


P.s Just so you know TT is my nickname for Tilda - it's meaning changes depending on the situation, we have Tilda Trouble, Tea with Tilda, Tilda Time (she takes her sweet time to do anything - even to eat)

One Year ago. . .

I can't believe this is where I was standing a year ago

Kayaking with crocs

Stories which could more accurately be described as bad (canadian) jokes around the fire

Looking at rocks!

One MASSIVE road trip

AND the best of friends

ahhh Happy Days!
