Bye to two great gals.

Well, Emily and Clare have run off never to return. (Actually, they did it a while ago but I was waiting to upload some pics to Flickr first). -I tried hiding their passports but I think they were on to me.

Its been really great having you both in our lives (the Boi is despondant now you are gone) and we are the richer for knowing you. If someone had told me that a UK knitter I met online would end up being one of my best friends I wouldnt have believed it.
You'll always have a place here in Sydney if you ever come back. Here's to our future India/some where cheap trip!

Must restrain myself! The rest of the preview is up here. Also liking the Parker Cardigan and the Float Stole.
