We were delayed a day in leaving Australia because of the volcanic ash cloud that caused cancelled flights for a few days. Bad news was we had to route through LAX instead of direct to SFO, but we arrived eventually, tired but ready for some summer. Oakland was glad to oblige!
I did some knitting on the train to Sydney, then gave it a rest for the flight. The Red Highland Triangle Shawl is proceeding well and I'm knitting the edging now. Fiddly, but effective. Wanna see? Of COURSE you do!
The weather is glorious -- sunny and warm, but not too hot. I think we'll hang about for a bit, then take a stroll down to Article Pract (LYS, name is a play on the words "practical art" -- I know, kinda lame, but a great yarn shop) and then on to Barlata's Tapas Bar for a little nosh, then an early night.
