I Must Keep My Promise..I Must etc etc16 March 2011
I promised myself that I’d blog every day in March – so far, so good. But in Sydney there’s only half an hour of this day (16th) left, and so far nothing from me. Must rectify before I go to bed.
A lot of my friends are in the throes of producing their garments to enter into the Easter Show, which runs from 14th to 27th April. My entry? Zilch, zero, nothing. I was determined last year that I’d enter something and tossed lots of ideas around over the last few months, but just couldn’t get inspired or motivated enough to actually produce anything (well, I’ve produced loads of things but nothing suitable for the show).
BUT I do get to do the review of the knitting for David at Sticks and String again, which I’m really looking forward to. I know we find lots of the entries rather bizarre, the display is dreadful and some of it is rather dispiriting. But that’s offset by some truly gorgeous creations, beautifully knitted. And then we nearly cry when we see what the “window dressers” have done to them. I’ve seen legs of lamb at the butchers more artfully displayed.
Changes are afoot but whether there’ll be enough of them this year remains to be seen.
