away from home / knitting progress

I will be away for a few days, probably without access to a computer, so if I don't leave comments on your blog it's because I haven't read your posts!

By the time many of you read this, I will be in transit between Sydney and Bingara (the town where my mum lives). Because of track work, I will be travelling by coach to Tamworth instead of the usual train (which I am not really looking forward to because I can get up and walk on the train!). Then another coach to Bingara - a journey of about nine and half hours!

On Thursday I will drive mum 100 kilometres (62 miles) to the town of Moree, where she will have an operation to remove a cataract on Friday. We will be staying in Moree on Thursday and Friday nights, and I will stay with mum on Saturday night. If all is going well, I will return home on Sunday.

I have pre-written some posts to keep you entertained while I am away! Enjoy!

Today I will leave you with a photo of my knitting: this is the blanket for William, my newest next door neighbour.
I am up to the fourth of the ten balls of Cleckheaton Fiddle De Dee cotton that will be needed to finish this blanket. With about sixteen hours of travelling and time in the hospital, I hope to have a UFO by the time I come home.


  1. Hi Lynne, I hope all goes well for your Mum's operation and for you to. I've known many people who have had such an op and benefited greatly.

  2. The blanket looks great. I hope you have a good trip and that your mum's operation goes well.

  3. Hope all goes well with your mum and her cataract op. My mum had both eyes done recently a week apart, and she only needs very light glasses now ... Previously she had lenses like coke bottles. Thinking good thoughts.

  4. I hope everything goes well for the operation. Have a save trip!

  5. Have a good trip and will pray all goes well with the surgery.


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
