V Knits

My name is Venus. I knit as much as possible, while juggling work and various other activities. Currently, my yarn sprees hinder my ability to save up for trips and other important things. But I'm not apologizing.

Home safe with plenty of pics

Okay, I'm starting to get back into the swing of things. Went back to work yesterday..... =( Started cooking dinners, making jam and KNITTING again! I am willing myself to triumph over my rainbow glove mitts. It is getting nipply cold in Vancouver and I need to be properly attired. More pictures on that later. Instead, here is a picture of me feeding a kangaroo at Brisbane's Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I got to hold a koala too! If anyone ever goes to Brisbane, visit this sanctuary! If anyone is interested in seeing the rest of my trip's pictures check them out at Hostel Hustle.

It's good to be back.

All the way from sunny Oz!

Well, I guess I can post can't I? Duh. I have been in Australia for about 10 days now! I have been to the Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, Gympie, Montville and right now I am in Brisbane. I am going to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary tomorrow to see koalas! I haven't had any time to do ANY knitting which I am ashamed to say. I have bought yarn though! (soy/silk) and alpaca fleece in a beautiful brown color. I have also gotten a pretty decent tan being on the lovely beaches here. That's it for now I guess, I miss checking all the blogs I'm used to reading!!! I love it here but I can't wait to be back home, in my own bed.

Off to Australia!

Well, this is it! I am leaving today for Brisbane, Australia and I'll be gone for three weeks. Deserting my boyfriend, my work and this rainy weather. I don't know how frequently I'll be hitting the internet so I'll say see you in three weeks just in case!
