The Island of Misfit Toys

Poor misfit dolly

I found this poor misfit hand puppetย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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…

Repeat.

Several times.

Flowers, Weird Gardens and My Cute Kid :)

My little Charlie really loves Doctor Who, Chameleon Circuit (and his sister).
Here’s a video his sister made combines all those things in one. I cried with the laughing at the cuteness but that may just be because I’m his Mum. Or maybe not. I especially like the bit near the end. New lyrics, yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the video he’s watching. An Awful Lot of Running by Chameleon Circuit.

But wait, there’s more!

This week’s flower loom tutorial is all about the twirl centre. This style of centre can be made on any flower, any shape, size, or material. I hope you like it. I have about another 110 flower loom videos to go ๐Ÿ™‚

I had to learn some new techniques to make the intro more interesting, so I practiced some of them in an animation that I call “Strange Garden”. It’s a simple piece made with images and footage that I had on my computer but I had a lot of fun with it and will probably make more in the future (with better graphics and a storyline and everything!)

Tomorrow, more cooking!
