I am a

What Flower
Are You?

blue blair witch project.

I'm knitting some toe less socks for a yoga buddy who is going to live in winter!

This is the cuff....still got to do all the tricky turning.............and then the patching up of holes that I create with my crap turns and moments of absent mindedness!!

Don't know how to rotate the top just tilt your head to the right.

I found this foto of felted flowers...... I finished them a while ago.
They were going to be corsages/broaches for a pink tea party....but the pink tea party never happened...sniff sniff!

If you want to destroy my sweater.....

.......pull this string as I walk away.

I'm pulling this apart....never really liked it, didn't fit well. I do however, love the wool, it's 100% pure and dyed by moi with lemon drink (tang like drink).

I'm not sure what I'll do with it.......but it would be nice to felt.

Shibi shibi shiboir do!

More shibori! I especially like the bottom green one!

I can't wait to see your wool tops Rebecca......have you ever thought about spinning? Not around, and around in your garden until you fall down, because I know you've done that....I've seen you!

Shibori......interesting stuff

I'm doing some research on shibori knitting.....I first saw it and thought that it was felted I realise that its much, much more! I'm just popping this site here for the moment, and will continue looking for interesting sites.

Look what I found in the mail on Monday!! I'm a terror when it comes to checking the mail box.... Reb I reckon it must have been sitting there a couple of days! I Luurrrve snail mail, especially when it's as beautiful as this!

In fact Reb, I love the whole package! Are you going to sell cards like this on Esty? I hope so!

On the weekend I started sorting out all of my knitting patterns....lots were missing and very I was thinking of making like a knitting scrap book. I think I'd make it with scrap paper (nice pieces) onto which I can stick interesting pics and wonderful cards I'll also include some plastic pockets for the patterns.....annnd I could bind it with......don't know...string maybe. Simone bought some hand made books at the markets with check them out for binding ideas.

Have been trying to work out pay pal.....a bit more complicated than I thought! I was going to splash out on a few new knitting patterns, but due to the whole system taking longer than I planned I bought India supermarket products instead......ghee, mung beans, banana chips...yummy.

It is nice to have a balcony Rebecca, but I think I'm going to have to bring in my poor bamboo, a strong dry wind is raging and its looking a little worse for wear!

Sunny days sitting on my balcony!

The birds are singing, my neighbour's chimes are chiming, the sun is shining. I'm sitting here on my balcony sipping fizzy water watching the world go by, and impatiently waiting for my lettuce to grow.....I keep eating them and they are very bald!! Life is good! I love staying at home on the weekends! I met Simone for a juice yesterday and gave her a very, very belated birthday now I can show you! It was my first attempt at felting anything larger than a bead! A good learning experience! I left the hem for Simone to do.......I cant cut straight lines!

Don't call it a come back! I bin here for years!

Hello all
I've actually just made quite a nice t*********** can't say what, its for Simone's belated birthday present! It was my first attempt and am quite pleased! But sorry, no pictures yet....not until she gets it! But I can show you some earrings I made ages ago for Rebecca! The felted balls are quite nice as they are really light and don't weigh down your ears! So no slitty holes.. (why does that sound obscene?) for Reb...oh no! Just got to find the right photo.....they are all pretty crap as I was running out of light fast and had to hunt around in my bro's garden to find some! Chao!
