The Road not taken….

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other just as fair

And having perhaps the better claim

Because it was grassy and wanted wear

Though as far that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black

Oh, I kept the first for another day

Yet knowing how way leads on to way

I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this with a sigh

somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood and I –

I took the one less travelled by

And that has made all the difference

Robert Frost

Something poetic for you today….feeling rather melancholy and reflective….

Sometimes you wake up and wonder how you got to where you are now. What paths you have taken and what doors were left unopened. Did you miss some, should you have taken another turn? Have you made wise decisions. Any regrets? Are you proud of where you are now?

At the end of my reflections, and after another coffee, I look around, see my loves, what they have become and will be. I see my past and look into the future through their eyes and I am satisfied. Happy for the road taken and where it has led me. To friends, husband, family. To a community, to a country I love. To passions and dreams and the joy of when the two meet. Yes, I am glad for the road I have taken. Are you?

Well,  now to the business hat hand….

My little cardi is done, after a lovely evening with the Knotty Ladies in Bendigo. Now unto the next….as you may know, we are expecting another baby cousin in a few weeks, so I better start something special quick smart. The tricky bit is that we don’t now what flavour. So I will have to produce either a unisex piece or one of each (as there will be another cousin later in the year…). And the thing is, I really wanted to try out my new Madelinetosh Sock for something other that a sock. I’ll be running a sock knit-along in a few months, so there will be plenty of opportunity then.

So here is what I have chosen…


And the pattern is from here

Maile Sweater

Can you see it? I can’t wait. So off I go to use the next couple of hours of quiet time to cast on.

See ya,
