We had a wonderful time in Australia! If you’d like, you can check out the travel photos here.
My travel companion through most of the trip was Coquille, seen here on a train in the Blue Mountains.
I finished it on my second-to-last evening in Australia, and I love how it turned out. I think it really shows off my Cairns handspun.
So the main beach in Byron Bay isn’t exactly the place for a wool shawl. It made a pretty backdrop.
And how long does it take to get home from Australia? Long enough to knit 63 rounds of Shedir.
This was the perfect pattern for a 32-hour door-to-door journey. It was just complicated enough to keep my mind busy, but easy enough to memorize that I could carry on despite major sleep deprivation and jetlag. Again, I’m pleased with the way it turned out.
I gave Juniper a tour of Australia, but I still haven’t decided what I’ll make with it. Think I can finish 4 oz challenge in the next two weeks?
