Thinking of Japan...

I took this photo a little over a year ago in Matsushima - not far from Sendai on the east coast of Japan. The bay there is covered in rocky islands that make up one of the three most beautiful views in Japan.
Sometimes the best preparation is just not enough.

Across the river

I don't often venture into the city on the weekend. I'm there every week day so it's nice to give it a miss for a couple of days. So yesterday was a little unusual with a wee trip to the arts precinct to kill two birds with one stone.

First stop: the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Gustave Moreau exhibition.

Next up: some sock photography.

If you look carefully at the toe of my left foot, you can see where I ran out of Twilight Saga yarn and had to finish the second sock off with a tiny bit of the-Colorway-that-must-not-be-named. Perhaps I should call these my Edward Diggory socks. Both are sold-out colours from Sunshine Yarns. The pattern is the Wedge socks by Cookie A from her new book Knit. Sock. Love. Project 1 of the 2011 Six Books Project is complete.

Then it was on to main event.
Spiegeltent

My first venture into the Spiegeltent to see the Kransky Sisters.

A perfect Melbourne day.
