The Island of Misfit Toys

Poor misfit dolly

I found this poor misfit hand puppet in K-Mart today. I desperately wanted to bring it home but I have no room!

Whilst I wonder how on earth it made it through quality control, I’m glad it did because my daughter and I had a great laugh playing with it before we decided we should act like the adults we are. Party poopers 😉


Knitting in Public Can Be Dangerous

Socks in progress

or at least a bit confusing.

Like many knitters these days, my take anywhere project is usually a pair of socks. Having just finished a pair, I grabbed a new skein of sock yarn and my super kitsch Christmas Kitty project bag as I ran out the door on my way to the local auctions.

Casting on, however, took on totally new dimensions in danger and brain confustication as I was a bit late and only had time to register before the auctions began.

My brain: OK, cast on 68. 1, 2, 3
Auctioneer: 20! Who’ll give me 20?
My Brain: 21, 22, 23
Auctioneer: 60!
My brain: 61, 62. Wait. That doesn’t look like 60 stitches.

My Brain: 1, 2, 3…


Several times.
