This week I have been out to lunch twice...Once with my daughter at the weekend, it was so lovely to have a little catch up. She is so busy with work and her life that we don't often get to see each other alone any more and so it is a real treat when that happens.
On Tuesday my fishing brother and an old friend met us at our place and we all travelled together to Dunalley for a lovely lunch at Bangor Wine and Oyster Bar, Lovely seafood, lovely sunny outlook over Blackman and Dunalley Bays and the canal, and lovely company...what's not to enjoy? They produce almost everything they provide on their property, including oyster farming, bread making, lamb for the pies, wine and olive products, a very interesting enterprise with delicious end product in a relaxing and low key but sophisticated environment that is a pleasure to visit.
Sarah had asked me to crochet her a "Link" figurine she had found online which turned out to have a free pattern attached, so I had a go...that is all (almost) all I am saying on the matter...except that after three days of frustrating and intense crocheting THIS monstrosity was the best I could do...Mind you...the pattern had been translated from the Japanese by a Japanese speaking American with unknown crochet pattern development skills, then created by me who did not have a clue what Link was meant to look like...not a surprising result really...when you think about it...
However, as I really hate wearing conventional slippers and the winter mornings are pretty nippy right now here in Southern Tasmania, I bought enough yarn to make myself two pair...The lads took one look at the finished pair and insisted on going back to buy more of the yarn while it was so cheap so I could knit them a pair each also...we will soon be a family of slug feet!
Bye now, thanks for visiting,
