"Time on the mountain Mel, time on the mountain" is what my friend Joe prescribed on our recent holiday whenever I whinged about my lack of ski skills.
Well, as it turns out "time on the sticks" was also what was required for me to be now, well and truly converted to the dark side.
Or maybe the trick was using such beautiful yarn. Or maybe it was the perfect pattern (The Everyday Cowl) for a knitter with my attention span. That excellent balance of simple stitches with a few fancy bits thrown in there now and then to stop me from getting bored and going back to my quick crafty fix of sewing a seam or two.
Now please excuse my bath towels in the background of my self-portrait shot
All set for some fairly constant wear over the next few days on my quick trip to Melbourne for Stitches & Craft! And now that it's finished, no worries about my needles being confiscated at the security check.
For more creative spaces and no doubt lots more chatting about S&C drop on over to Kirsty's place.
