  • Hi,

    I can't believe it: I found an Australian knitter in this swap. Knitting in Australia isn't that popular, I think. The weather ..
    My husband's Australian and we are living in Germany. I will visit your blog again.

  • Thanks for having me KM!

    Hi Andrea. Knitting is pretty popular here. While it doesn't get as cold as Europe, we still have plenty of opportunity to wear knitted jumpers, scarves, gloves etc and of course socks!

  • I had a completely different impression but most of the time we were in Brisbane and the women I met there were astonished to see me knitting all the time ;-)
    My Mother-in-law loved to do it though.

    Nice socks btw ;-)
