Remember this? I don’t think it’s really string, but that’s what it feels like – knitting cotton I think.
With a bit of perseverance, I’m not a speedy knitter by any means, this is what I ended up with. Two veggie/fruit bags to take shopping. Now that single use plastic bags are a thing of the past, we have to think what to do with the loose produce we want to buy, although I notice that larger quantities are still bagged.

Just had to change the pattern. The overall lacy design on the bottom of the larger bag was not difficult, but so slow to knit with those big needles. So after several rows I changed to garter stitch, and it went much quicker. The smaller bag was knitted in alternate rows of garter stitch and holes.
As we had recently returned from our recent Aussie Adventure holiday there was another job to get on with. I had made this quilt as a memory quilt to record the adventures on our first Australian rail trip. With plenty of spare room on the sashings it now records the adventures we have enjoyed over four Aussie Adventures. Places we stayed, scenery, attractions visited, rides, exotic (to us) food eaten, any thing of interest got written down. It is a visual diary of our holidays. Of course, the quilt was constructed with Australian, mostly Aboriginal inspired designs.

So that’s been my week – what have you been getting up to?
