  Australians all let us . . .
What a lovely day has been had. We marched this morning in the Launceston ANZAC march, with school. Little Purl is on the SRC and Number One Son wore his great grandfather’s medals (from his father’s side). He was in PNG – this is the first year NOS has marched, and his grandfather has entrusted the medals to us now, so it will become an annual thing. Unless families are not allowed to march. I personally think this would be an absolute shame. We felt very proud today, proud to be Australian!


I knitted a bit but mainly worked on work stuff. However, I did complete armwarmer number one. I swear it is much nicer and more in focus in real life. I had a real struggle taking a picture!


And I have been working on this, up to the first heel flap. I am surprised how quickly the 4ply knits up, it doesn’t seem to take long at all.


Here is the sock I have started for Purl, SS drew me a skull and xbones chart the other evening, can you spot them? The black bit is a bit pully inny because the yarn is a slightly different size(?) and I was a bit too tight. However, she loves them so far. I am up to the heel flap on that sock too. As well as all that, I have done a minute bit of Manly. I swear I will finish this blinking jumper. One day.

Aussie Aussie Aussie.

You all had every reason to feel proud. I saw something on TV last night about some veteran saying that women and children shouldn't march, what a load of crap and I do hope that his thoughts are extremely rare.

You also have some lovely knitting there, love the skull socks, when Suzi sees them she will want the pattern I am sure!!!
 
Some veterans get all pernickety about things, don't they?? If no families were allowed to march in place of their old or dead rellies, ANZAC Day would soon be over!!!!
Most excellent knitting!!! I love the arm warmers, and why not, and the socks?? Words would fail me ( If I ever had that problem!!!)
 
Love your socks. They look terrific.

Couldn't agree more about families marching. If the decendents don't then who'll be left???

Lest we forget.
 
Socks are looking good!

I know I cant get over how fast 4ply knits up with socks!

Great socks. Geeze, no families? Wonder who was fought for then, right? Hold your heads up high -- sounds like you've done the right thing.
 
Socks with skulls? Socks with skulls? I am very excited, there isn't nearly enough skull knitting in the world.

Why they take the hump about families marching is beyond me, if nobody else wanted to march they'd all be complaining nobody appreciated the effort they all fought for.
 
You have been tagged on my blog my dear.
