Hats, Trains and Grafitti Lanes

You may have noticed the slight hat obsession at the moment... Since March, I have knitted (wait I'm counting on my fingers - 4 wurm beanies, Barnaby the cloche, a hat for Louise, plus four more) - 10 hats! You'll be pleased to know I have stopped for a while turning my energies instead to cardigans and aran jumpers.

However, the hats are being persistently noisy little creatures when they gather together in packs and have been nagging for a chance to show off in public. They're pretty good at sneaking their way into photos too.

So enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon watching a steam train on the railway line that runs out the front of our house and a glimpse into the gorgeous gratified laneways of Melbourne (For more try a Google image search on Melbourne Laneways. They are a never ending changing canvas of colourful graffiti imagery, as well as cool cafes and restaurants and awesome coffee - coffee is sort of the lifeblood of Melbourne). Oh and keep your eye out for photo-bombing hats.

I'd love you to say Hi. It's so much fun hearing from my cyber friends.
