This morning I went out the back to discover a tree full of sulphur-crested cockatoos. They're stripping the bark off our gum tree which has died from the drought. They're large noisy birds! The 8 in this photo were only most of the flock... there were probably about 12 all up. We see them around here a lot, but today's mass banquet was a bit unusual.
And here is my Knit Picks set! I'm very happy with it so far - the join between the needles and cable is smooth, and doesn't snag on stitches. The cables are very flexible, and I like the purple colour! I'd like some duplicates of the different length cables, will have to see what I can find online in Oz... My Mariah sleeve is now on a Knit Picks needle, and very happy about it too!
And here's where I've got to with my Mariah sleeve :
And the Step-Mother's Pink Fluff thing - note the black pen as a scale. She's is bloody tiny. Just as well, really, as there's only so much of this yarn I can take.
And lastly, I've been resting my leg, and can walk again, as long as I don't move my hip the wrong way - but I'm going to need an ultrasound, and probably the cortisone injection. I know I need it, I just don't want it :p
