This post comes to you lovingly from Sunny Australia!

I’m on holidays right now visiting my family and having lots and lots of fun!  Unfortunately it also means that there is virtually zero crochet happening as I’m far too busy being Ms Social Butterfly 2015…

Here’s the one project I managed to complete:

It occurred to me that if you are using an RSS reader to read my posts, you won’t see all my pics.  I’m adding some from instagram directly and the image doesn’t translate through to Feedly or Bloglovin.  So, click through to to see them all.

I had planned to make this beautiful Summer Shawl (from Crejjtion’s Puur Haken book) on the flight over and made great progress on the leg between Amsterdam and Dubai, but after that it was dark, and a really quick day and extended night so I kind of sat in a daze for many, many hours.

It was a gift for my aunt’s 80th birthday and in the end I was up until 10 pm the night before finishing it and getting it on the blocking boards!  Thankfully we are in Australia and the blocking was done over night, instead of the usual three days in Holland for a cotton project!

Otherwise, we’ve just been hanging at the beach

and trying to avoid the scorching sun, Australia has really put it on for us!

I’m in project dream mode too.  Wondering what I should make next.  I do have a modified Jasper V on the go in orange bamboo, but it’s not satisfying me.  I’m spending my days ogling Cleckheaton Superfine Merino and wondering what project would be perfect.  What would you make?

There will be a bit of a posting drought over the next few weeks while I’m in Australia, so if you want to keep up with what I’m doing, you’ll have to follow me on Instagram, where I’ll be sharing pics of my daughter and I frolicking in the sun!

See you soon!
