Twice in the last few months I’ve had the chance to go to a concert at the Sydney Opera House. First, for Tori Amos last November, where I wore my Myrtle Leaf shawl. Next was two weeks ago on the weekend trip to Sydney where we saw Amanda Palmer, another singer-songwriter on piano. I have a bit of a weakness for piano playing women, I confess.
This time I wore my Icarus shawl and Sean took these photos which I thought I’d share. I just think Icarus looks so striking against black clothing, and the way she’s blowing in the wind makes her come so alive!
The steps of the Opera House were filling up, not just with the Goth girls in their incredible outfits inspired by Amanda Palmer, but also with people who’d come out to see the Queen Mary II in the harbour. You can see that in the background above.
I really don’t have much in the way of good dress up clothing. I tend to wear the same tops and skirts and pants over and over. But I’m getting a lovely collection of shawls and find they are just the right accessory to dress up old standard clothes.
Any excuse to knit a new one, I say.
