Create and Inspire

I love those words - Create and Inspire -
they sound calming and full of never ending possibilities.
One of the poles at the front of the National Gallery of Australia,
in Canberra will be 'wearing' this soon,
so I hope it enjoys the word Create as much as I do! I have had a lot of fun knitting this rather large piece and if you would like
to contribute to the project you can find more information on grrl+dog.
She is even offering a nice reward!

My youngest cherub thinks he might make something too -
maybe a type of embellishment that could be used to decorate some of the knits.
He's pretty impressed to think that Mum is doing some knitting for "The Guerilla Knitter" and he's been telling some of the kids at school about it,
but he delights in the fact that he knows the difference between gorilla and guerilla!
Yesterday, husband and I drove up to the Clare Valley where husband had a bit of work to do in the morning and then we went here for our lunch
- Skillogallee Winery. Photo from Skillogallee Winery website
Sorry you couldn't have been there too - maybe next time.

Christina - Skillogallee is our favourite ever Sunday lunch spot! You've reminded me that we are long overdue for a trip up there to experience Diana's amazing cooking. Just love your Canberra project, as you know I'm totally useless with crafty things, but one thing I can do sort of OK is knit. Time to get the needles clicking again.
