The annual insanity that is July is here.
The Tour deFrance started at 10pm last night [ our time ] and with it the annual Ravelry TDF Knitalong, as well as the Tour de Fleece*, so I will be trying to spin something every day that Le Tour rides, as well as knitting myself a jacket that I cast on at the start of the Prologue last night:

… oh, and we moved Nadie & The Boy back to Melbourne this week
… and #1 son and DDIL’s new bub is due in less than 2 weeks so there was a not-quite-last-minute blankie to be crocheted

* last night’s spinning was a fairly token 10 minutes because, after several days of boxes / packing / loading /unloading, the treadling knee wasn’t too keen on the idea. I’ve had a stern talk to it so we’ll do better tonight … maybe.
and I didn’t even tell you about this morning’s latest thrilling chapter in the ongoing saga of the Great Goat Escape[s] 2012
