That's a really, really good question, about maybe different kinds of achievements should be celebrated now. REALLY good. So good that I'm going to have to think on it for a while.


Wow, good question! I guess the odds are quite different today but they probably are still odds to overcome. Hmmmmmm... Beautiful sweater too...just gorgeous!


As a Sydneysider, I've been following your travels around the 'yarn o sydney'..
Glad you're settling in back home with some knitting.
Speaking of which, lurve that sweater!
The simplicity of it; the neck particularly, the colour, the rib spacing..that's just my style! Only tiny quibble is that tho i love the idea of the self-belt (tres sixties)that would so attract attention to the every-expanding pear-shaped-ness. On me anyway..but wait! It's not for me! ;)

Wait a minute. I didn't know that you worked for a magazine. You have GOT to email me back.

That sweater looks good. Is that for you?

I agree about the struggles being different now. I think, too,that it is upon the parent to stress how hard it was and still is. To relate those stories to now would be a great step in the direction of the person that's learning.

Knit on! (email me)


That sweater is gorgeous! Good luck with the magazine deadlines.


That tunic is gorgeous! I love the color.

As for achievements & such...I fear that today's young are so unappreciative & have no idea what those before went through just so they could have the rights & privileges they take for granted today. I don't know. I'm old school when it comes to that.


That sweater is Keeyute.


Love the color and style of the sweater. A whole lotta loving went into that one. I'm amazed at how you find time to do all that you do. Remember to take time to breathe.



Oh, that's a beautiful sweater you've finished. Looks great.
