Rain yeah!

We got some long awaited rain today and more is forecast for the whole weekend. My sister Jane lives in the Top part of Western Australia which is going through its wet season at the moment. I received a note from her this afternoon telling me the rain had finally stopped this week, thats for the moment. She had put photos on facebook and my goodness the roads were badly flooded. Anyway I chatted back and said I was glad her rain had stopped because now we are getting our share.

I worked on my blue aran sweater this evening and completed the front up to the neck shaping before dinner. Since then I have done the shaping for one half of the neck front and expect to complete the second half of the neck shaping over the weekend. Then of course I have two long sleeves to knit. It is a very heavily cabled sweater in quite a heavy cotton so it will certainly be a winter and fall sweater not a spring summer one here in Folsom.

It has been a few days since I did any knitting on the Plymouth jacket but I only have the right front and the second sleeve to knit. That won’t take too long and then of course I will probably procrastinate about the finishing..

Well it is very late so I am going to make hot chocolate and then go to bed. We have two skylights right above our bed so it is lovely to listen to the rain at night.

Off to the Folsom Quilt and Fiber Show tomorrow and again on Sunday at the information desk for three hours so that will be fun.

Bye for now
