We've had some really bad days in Victoria. Most of those reading know about it and I don't think I could say anything better than what has been said in respect to the sympathy that we have for those who lost so much and the awe we have for those who risked it all to save what could be saved. But I can point to this. Seriously, have a look... it will make you smile in the midst of all the bad news.
And it's actually cloudy and cool today. Which seems odd after the week we've had.
I've starting knitting all the fishtails on my Lothlorien Sunshine Shawl. Two down... something like ten to go? And as I arrived home after work (having just cleaned out my office - not that I'm leaving, I'm just moving to new digs), I found a surprise parcel. Well, not so much a surprise, but I hadn't thought about it in a bit. My first installment of Knit!'s cinema sock club - The Wizard of Oz month. I shan't say too much, since by some quirk of fate, the one person in the club who hasn't had their yarn yet will probably click onto my blog for the first time ever and I have enough friends telling me off about 'spoilers' (I admit it, I'm bad - I also have a mother who always asks me what happens at the end of a film or book, so I'm kind of trained to 'spoil'), but let's just say, it sparkles and Rose Red would approve! Okay, that was a bit spoilery, but, as I said, what are the odds? I'll put a photo up in a few days' time.
