Leaving on a Jet Plane


Easter Holidays are here - woo hoo!
We are busy packing to head off to the Top End.
There is stuff everywhere and we leave in 2 hours.
I am confident it will all come together.

I bought some cheap wool at Big W the other day to work on
a granny square blanket on the plane.
Whilst in the queue a lady commented that seeing
people buying wool makes her want to knit.
I mentioned on-line tutorials on You-Tube
and the conversation came around to blogging.
Oh Carmel's Closet - I read you!
Said the lovely Meg Smith.

[Meg, please tell Nadia to click on the facebook
link on the right side of my blog to go through to
Lucy, my friend who teaches knitting locally.
Also if you email me I will send you details of our
knitting (& crochet club) which meets once a fortnight.]

We will arrive in Darwin tonight.
The forecast is for hot and sticky.
The intention is that kids and I are all day in the pool tomorrow,
while him what works goes to work.
We head off to Kakadu for a few days in the middle.
What are you up to for Easter?

I couldn't resist starting the granny blanket the other evening.
I've been wanting to try for ages and I'm loving how
quickly it is coming together.

Happy Easter!
Carmel

Oh Darwin, my home town. I'm envious! If you can go to the Parap markets on Saturday morning. Such yummy food! A great local pool is the Nightcliff public pool - highly recommend too!
So what a small world it is! Have a great time away, and I look forward to your photos too. x

We are in the midst of a sand storm. Schools were closed today. Spring Break was last week and since our weekends are Friday and Saturday, Easter Day will be a regular school/work day around here. :/ Enjoy you holiday. Crochet is the best hobby for carry on. :) Best wishes, Tammy

hi honey- how lovely to have met a reader...in like, real life!!
nice to know that one is still allowed to crochet on a plane, don't you think- seeing as they usually give you plastic cutlery in case you decide to go mad mid flight!

have a wonderful time- kakadu!!!!!

i have my brother, wife and nieces here so we are taking them to london for easter- the weekend before the wedding- so should be lovely at Buckingham palace!
