Saturday And The City

It's not that often I go into the city for shopping, but I did have reason to race into Melbourne this morning....I jumped on the tram, remembering how much I hate public transport but it's the easiest way to get in and get out quickly.  
I hate the crowds, and knowing that the Australian Open Tennis is on,  the Lego exhibition is on & because it's overcast it makes it the perfect day for shopping so everyone is out and about.....I knew there were going to be people everywhere.....and there was. 

I had to go to Tiffany & Co as I have a necklace to be repaired and cleaned, and a trip into the city always involves a hot chocolate at the Lindt Cafe which happens to be right next door to Tiffany in Collins Street, very convenient....a dash into Zara in the Mall and then to pick up some yarn that was on hold.  On the way out I walked past the City Square, only to find some Yarn Bombers.......Lucky I always pack my camera now.

So on a grey day in Melbourne, enjoy the splendour of colour.

And all to get this......

Now I have plenty of knitting to do.  Enjoy your Saturday.

  1. Oh wow. What a visual delight! Living in the country makes these things seem all the more amazing! I simply adore the knitted tree! And the wall of coloured paper. Makes me want to make my own!

    1. Thanks Karen...that wall of paper and the globe is magnificent. I had to laugh as I think I stood there for about 10 minutes waiting for a break in the pedestrian traffic....then clicked for my life!!

  2. Yarn bombers! I love them, addong their creative flair to the mall. Hope the pedestrians enjoy. Hmmm what is that divine destined for?

  3. Thanks Vicki for the lovely photos to enjoy. Being from Brisbane and never been to Melbourne it was nice to see your photos and also, what you like to photograph. And Yarn Bombers, never heard on them, but now know. Just love your yarn, the colour is so happy..

  4. Hello from Pender the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. I love your site and especially love the babies and their hats. If I should win a hat in the draw, please send a size to fit a one to two year old. Happy knitting!
