Cold and Wet

Hi Everyone! It's been very cold and wet here, we are finally getting the much needed rain.

My cough came back and this time it's a lot worse then it was the first time. I have no pictures this week. But I finally finished the Gentleman's Winter sock, I don't think I will make this one again as I really don't like the Dutch heel, though Kim says they are very comfortable.

I am still working on my RYC cardigan, and of course I started the Mystery Stole 3.

I bought the Addi lace needles for the MS3 (I've been dying to try them) and I don't like them!

Yep, shock horror, because I love the regular ones. The problem I have with the lace Addi's is that they really hurt my sore wrist I used them last night and they really made it sore, it's been hurting me all day. Where as the Knit Picks ones don't, go figure! So I will be switching back to use Knit Picks.

I have also posted my final parcel to my Secret Pal 10 and I will put her blog address up once I know that she's received it. I do hope she likes what I sent her.

Tomorrow we are off to spend a night and afternoon on my brother's boat. He and his wife bought a lovely boat and they invited us to spend the weekend on it with them.

There is a boat show on in Melbourne and they all moor near where the show is being held, there will be fire works at 8pm so it should be fun (I am not really into boats). First we will go out to dinner then back to the boat in time to see the fire works and we will play cards after that probably till the early hours of the morning. It will be nice to catch up with them and spend some time together.

We usually like to get together regularly for dinner and a card game. So not much knitting will get done this weekend, but then, my wrist could probably use a rest.

Oh and I forgot to mention, I am having a week off work (Yeah!!) to be home with Jared for the school holidays and to catch up on some much needed house work.

Have a great weekend everyone and I will post some pictures next time I blog.

I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I am looking forward to seeing your stole. I am liking my addi lace needles I like the points on them. I don't have the knit picks needles, so I can't compare them. Have fun this weekend on the boat, and feel better.

Darn these coughs we are all getting. Make sure you keep up your fluids.
Hope you wrist is feeling better soon, if you want to sell your Addi lace needles, let me know.
Hope you had a nice time out on the bay, you get such a beautiful view of our fair city from there.
