Knitting, snow and Lomography dreaming

Hello. Well I have returned back, to Brisbane, from my trip home to Scotland. You may know, or not, that floods of an epic scale have hit Queensland over the last week. Fortunately we live on a hill out of the reach of the muddy water. Of course others are not as fortunate and now the big job of cleaning up begins.

When I was in Scotland there was big disruptions with serve cold weather and snow. So from one end of the scale to the other. I did really enjoy my trip home, seeing family and friends was great. I mostly just hung out with my parents. It must be in my blood to enjoy wrapping up warm and walking about in the cold!

One of the only semi- reliable and safer ways of getting around was by train. So took my knitting needles out of my case and got on with my cardi while the winter landscape went flying past. I am quite new to knitting and its a slow process. I also worked out that I have been adding extra rows on, duh. My Nana assures me that once you have knitted your first garment that you get faster.

I got heaps of lovely presents, mostly costumes pattern books. But on thing I did get was a Lomograpghy Diana camera. You can see it in the picture above. I have taken some photos with it, but they still have to be developed. You may remember my post when I day dreamed of having one... well I do now and it is aptly named   'Dreamer'. Plus the fact that it is sherbet mint is very agreeable.



  1. the sherbet mint color is very nice! I just got a violet holga and I can't wait to use it!

    And you will get faster at knitting. The cardi looks to be a lovely color.

  2. I have been wondering whether any of the bloggers and journal writers I read are in Queensland, but I think you're the only one. What is happening there is extreme! :(

  3. Hi there, I just wanted to say I love your blog! I'm a brand new blogger and would really appreciate any advice you might give if you feel like stopping by my blog for a read :)
