I spent most of today doing something that I do quite well and that’s talking! I met with a friend of mine who lives at Peregian Springs and we spent a lovely four hours chatting, drinking coffee and in my case, knitting.
I started another cowl which is a very easy project to knit whilst talking as it’s simply rounds of knit and purl. I’ve decided not to put a twist in this one…just for something different.
When I arrived on Saturday I had to pick up the keys to my unit from Hastings Street in Noosa Heads and whilst wandering up and down the street I found this quirky little shop that sold knitted Tibetan items. Everything in the shop was 50% off so of course I had to dig amongst the knitted items didn’t I? This is what I bought.
A pair of gorgeous green mittens that have a mitten motif on each one.
Aren’t they the cutest mittens you’ve ever seen?
I was also drawn to these gorgeous fingerless mittens too. I love the colours!
And now for a bit of hand modelling!
There was a little slip of paper in the bag with the following words written on it: “We work directly with Tibetan and Nepalese families creating the unique pieces in Nepal using the best quality colour fast cotton and wool. Each item is handcrafted by artisans who receive a fair wage for their work. The patterns and styles reflect the wonderful cultures of origin and the handcrafted nature is evident in the variations in colour and design. Thank you for supporting Fair Trade”.
And here’s the final purchase…these stunning slippers which I just love. Now it just needs to get cold enough this winter so I can wear them!
I love all the different shades of green…
Well that’s it for today. Not too much achieved but certainly a lot of talking. Isn’t that what holidays are all about…doing as you please!
Until next time…from restful and relaxing Noosaville…
