|A Cute Little Chap at
The photo above is one that I took when I was in Sydney in 2013, but he’s so cute I didn’t think anyone would mind seeing him again!
I have been in Australia for a week and a half, having had to travel out at very short notice. When I booked the flights I asked if crochet hooks are allowed on their flights and was told that they are not. It was a bit frustrating that I couldn’t do something productive on the journey but I wasn’t too bothered about it. However, when we were waiting to go through security at Changi Airport in Singapore, I saw a woman who was travelling on the same flight and she was doing tapestry with a needle! I wonder why the rules are different for different people? Hmph.
During the time that we have been here in Adelaide, I have managed to do some crochet.

The hexagons I am making are from a huge ball of cream-coloured aran yarn. I brought a small amount of baby blue yarn to use as a small amount of contrast. I am on my fourth hexagon so at least I shall have two jackets to complete for children in Syria when I arrive home.
If you are interested in making items for children in Syria, there are several charities who will be grateful, including the charity that I take my donations to: Syria Relief .
