Road testing the full regalia
Here I am in full crocheted regalia giving it the icy wind test. Not bad. Wool however is horrendously itchy, particularly on your head. The scarf is mostly cotton and works a lot better. Must remember that.
I was very impressed by a photograph of a spiny anteater encountered on a beach walk , posted to her blog recently by a virtual friend. http://origidij.blogspot.com/ The best I could managed on my beachwalk today was a herron. It required full zoom and the results, I'm sure you'll agree, are truly rubbish. Guess I'll have to play with my camera some more.
After returning from walk I went through my neighbour's bins (paper only) looking for colour supps to recycle in my forthcoming schools project. Not a bad haul including a 2005 Kandinsky calendar and a Mensa magazine. Didn't realised I had such cultured and intelligent neighbours!
