We had a late lunch today and went onto the verandah to have our cup of tea. Autumn colours around and green grass, swallows darting in and out, magpies chasing each other with a flurry of wings, little blue wrens looking for tiny insect treats and two dogs for company! What could be better than staying here after the cup of tea is finished with my knitting! I have got to a crucial part in my vest... I have just picked up ALL the stitches around the vest, something like 684 stitches. And completed the first row, 2 plain 2purl for the ribbing. And guess what! I have had the right number, I have been very anxious about the final tally as it had to be divisible by 4 And I have done it!!
