I heard the other day that there is to be a worldwide sock knitting competition in Westbury, Tasmania. Westbury is a lovely old country town, about 20(I have never actually timed it but it isn't far) minutes from where I live. I wasn't sure whether to enter or not but hey what have I got to lose. Along with my fellow knitters from my knitting group we will be heading out there on the day to check all the entries out, should be a fun day out. You can read all about it HERE.
On a very sad note, I heard yesterday that a very good friend of mine from high school has passed away, she was only 39 years of age and has left behind a husband and 4 children. I last saw her at our 20 year high school reunion 4 years ago and she was the same as always, the most bubbly, full of life girl that I remembered from our school days. She dropped me off home after the reunion and said we must catch up to which I said yes, but we never did. A lesson to be learnt here I think, anyway PJC, rest in peace honey and I have four years worth of the most wonderful memories that I will keep with me forever.
