Shawl off The Needles

After much knitting I cast off my La  Cumparsita Shawl by Marnie MacLean Designs.

I spent a lot of the weekend at Lancefield trying to get the small leaf component complete and have spent the week or so since getting the Large leaf pattern complete.

The yarn is a Wollmeise 100% WD in Red (Bussi according to the covered label).

Alas no photos and a blocking still to complete.

Tripping through the Countryside of Victoria with Knitters

Wandering Lancefield

A totally delicious lunch at Annie Smithers Bistrot in Kyneton resulting in a duck fat and sugar coma.

A Knitter's Breakfast Coffee, Tea, Eggs, Bacon and Pancakes with knitting all around.

Fun and games galore - like the Cookie A Shot below.

Knitting in the Garden Friday, Saturday and stretching it into Sunday...and a bit of drinking in the garden too.

and a great little country bookstore.

The facts 10 women, 7 meals, 3 lost runners, 2 nights, 1 search and rescue operation, too many drinks and lots of laughs.

What a great weekend. More photos at knitabulous, web-goddess, drkknits and missfee

Thanks ladies and Thanks Ailsa for a totally not harebrained scheme.
