Oh, and one other little thing. Hubby came home from a trip to Sydney with a gorgeous little black gift bag. I got my Bulgari ring! I noticed Michelle Bridge's wearing a black/gold ring in one of her 12wbt videos so I hopped on the internet to hunt it down. It's the Bulgari B.Zero. I promised myself that I would get one for reaching, and ultimately surpassing, my weight goal. I've lost 13kg and am still the same weight 3 months later. Michelle, thank you for sharing your wealth of information!

Color Affection

So I've joined the cult and decided to knit Color Affection. I've never seen such an amazingly popular pattern! It was released at the beginning of February 2012 and already there are 1331 projects!!! At 3.90EU, that's a tidy little sum.

I've chosen to use TML because of it's fluffiness and the gorgeous soft colours. In this case, Antler (MC), Antique Lace (C1) and Charcoal (C2). What a super fun and simple knit. Stay tuned!

My Best Friend's Wedding

So, finally, my last best friend got married this weekend. All my other's have already walked down the aisle. That's me standing by her side, the MOH (Matron Of Honour). It was touch and go whether the weather was going to hold out, but it turned out to be a spectacular day! Albeit very windy down by the beach. It was a lovely day / evening filled with a lovely mix of eclectic people and music. Thank you for choosing me to be your MOH. Love you Binks (Sara) x

Austin Hoodie

Well, I did it. I finally finished my Austin Hoodie using TML. The instructions for the hood were a bit weird for me so I just winged it. I reckon it turned out pretty good. Maiden voyage today!
