Three things

1) If you're thinking of making a donation to help those affected by the devastating fires in Victoria then this is the place for you to visit: Serendipity

2) If you haven't got it already and you can get your hands on a copy of the spring Interweave Knits - DO! For the glory that is the The Florist Knits collection - SO many beautiful pieces - I don't think I've ever liked so many patterns from one collection before. The two cardigans, fabulous scarf and shawl I want to cast on for NOW.

3) If you were me this weekend you'd be a very lucky lady. Cushion the first is knit and number two is underway. Mama is visiting this weekend with her sewing machine so I will have some tuition on how to back them. (And someone to shop with for the yarns for the Florist Knits).

May your weekends be as wonderful.

Oh goodness! that knit is looking very, very good. I am knitting all weekend this weekend. The man is going ice climbing, Monday is a holiday here and it's very cold outside and snowing like crazy.

I spent some of mine knitting squares and learning to crochet them together for the bushfire survivors. it feels good to do something.

the rest was moving concrete, and more concrete. ho hum

Your weekend sounded lovely! I'm off to find an IK now, I don't always buy it, but I agree, lots of cute patterns in this one!
