09 October 05 - 22:34 just returned from our first ever trip to the kruger park. have decided to knit that winter cardigan now.
it was overcast for two days. sheer luck (or stubborn european preparation) that i always carry a jersey while camping. for weeks on end i had been in 35°plus, celsius that is, and suddenly it was just some 18° in daytime. brrrr. try getting up at daybreak, 5 am, for a three-hour trip in an open truck with nothing between you and the drizzle.
luckily we're back in the thirties now, but i want that cardigan before we're on any next camping trip. oncoming summer or not.
