Bloody Hawthorn Longies

Well despite all the drug allegations regarding this team, I decided to do the right thing by the father of my children and dye up some treliske and turn them into some Hawthorn longies for Hamish.
I'm actually pretty happy with them - they are a much more subtle shade of yellow and brown then the real thing, but thats fine by me!
Isn't my little man a cutie :D

Another swap - stitchmarkers!!

Its so nice being a part of these swaps. This was a stitchmarker swap on Woolaholics I participated in, and what a lovely swap I received. Its the cutest little beads on wire, and its great that something so simple can be so darned cute and useful.
Thanks to my secret swapper, muchly appreicated. Considering at the moment I use loops of embroidery floss.... this will make my knitting look alot prettier :D

Hat for Jessica

My niece had her 5th birthday this weekend, and I decided to make her something quick to go with her pyjamas for a present. I made this hat from soem thick and thin wool that I have had forever. While you cant see, the hat has several cables working up to the crown. It was super easy to make, and I got Jenna to model it for me. Doesn't she look impressed.... LOL

My not so secret swap

In the recent book swap for Nappycino, I was lucky enough to receive these goods from Tikki and Lily-Rainbow. Muchly appreciated and enjoyed by all.
Her charming husband dropped it off at my doorstep - I must have scared him last time with my angry face, so he decided not to knock this time :D

Yarn Swap

This arrived today in the mailbox for my yarn swap.
Very happy with it, looks like Treliske and its dyed red and blue with a bit of white remaining.

Jenna loves it too... She's already decided she wants a jumper and a hat and some gloves. Ahh - gotta love kids.

Thanks heaps to my swapper in NSW. :D
