These are photos my parents took from their property in Musk last week. Luckily this is as close as the fire got to them. There were no houses lost in this fire, there were a few sheds and stock (alpacas I think) lost though. I was on the phone to my parents every couple of hours on Monday evening, Tuesday and Wednesday to check what was happening and it was a bit of a roller-coaster. One minute it would be everything seems under control and the next mum would say shit the fire is coming closer. I was pretty sure they'd be OK because the had sprinklers going all over their property and they have a big dam they could get in if they had to but still ... it was scary.

He's getting bigger.

Shawl, chair, suitcases and hand (ie random stuff)

Phase 1 of Cable Shawl from Jo Sharp Knit Issue 6 completed. Ravelry link. The next phase is to pick up a bazillion stitches along the side and knit about 10cm of ribbing on each side. It's gonna take a while.

And I got two of these chairs from someone's hard-rubbish out in the street. They're in perfect condition!
Found these in someone's hard-rubbish, woot!
I think my new cat is causing contact dermatitis :( I used to really suffer from it when I was in high school. It would cover all of my fingers and I'd have to bandaid them all so that I didn't bleed on things. I never knew what was causing it but it cleared up when I moved out of home and just showed up again since I got the cat so I'm betting that's what's causing it. I can't get rid of my beautiful kitty so I guess I'll justs have to live with it. Really hope it doesn't get as bad as it used to though.
