(yet another scarf attempt for
Audrey)
I have been completely re-inspired to learn knitting yet again (I always give it up after winter and forget) especially after visiting Pauline at her Pop- Up shop Pop Craft. It is full of the most stunning, bright yarns and beautiful knitting books among other things.  Well worth a visit if you are over on Lygon Street!

The blue yarn pictured above was bought from Pop Craft last year - being the slow knitter I am I have pulled it out again this year!

Contemporary Textile Award 2012 - Castlemaine


Elizabeth is getting a second chance and has made her way to the 2012 Contemporary Textile Award in Castlemaine. The exhibition will be held at the Buda Historical Home and Garden, 42 Hunter Street, Castlemaine and will run from Saturday 2nd June - Sunday 17th June.

Castlemaine is such a beautiful town outside of Melbourne and well worth a visit (has an amazing bookshop and venue for gigs the Theatre Royal - which has seen the likes of Cat Power, Dirty Three and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy)

Goodluck Elizabeth!
