The Memory Lingers On

I was reprimanded by my daughter the other day for not having any of her wedding photos on my blog. So, here are just a few of my favourites.

The ceremony was held at St Johns church, Reid ACT on 5 July 2008.

This photo was taken in the middle of Anzac Avenue, Canberra with the Australian War Memorial in the background.

Sunset on Lake Burley Griffin then off to the National Press Club at Barton for the reception.

Did you notice the wrap my daughter was wearing for that last photo? I had three weeks to knit two - one for the bride and one for her bridesmaid (my other daughter). Each wrap was 15 inches wide and 65 inches long. It was a rush but I guess it took my mind off worrying about other things !

I've decided to take a break from knitting for awhile and go back to my favourite craft - crochet. Here's a little cardigan I started last Friday and had it finished by Saturday night. Almost instant gratification - that's the good thing about crochet vs knitting.

I got the pattern for this cardi from JustCrochet in the UK. I must say this lady's patterns are such a delight to use - well written and easy to follow. She has some lovely patterns from Premmie to 12 month sizes plus some beautiful blankets and shawls. Well worth a look if you like to crochet for babies.

If anyone reading this has a spare ball of Panda Baby Lustre 8ply (Col. 52B, Lot 742729) lying around that you don't need, can you please contact me. I'm halfway through a jacket and realise I'm going to need another ball of yarn. I'd be very grateful for your help.
