Knitty roo

G'day all!

I am very behind in posting stuff. Two weeks ago (*blush*), I received a tshirt from my friend Yarnhunter.


Isn't it appropriate for an Aussie knitter?

I've been mucking about a bit the last few days, trying to figure out what shawl to knit next for the 10 in 2010 challenge on Ravelry. I have enough handspun to knit another three shawls. Finding a good match between the yarn and the pattern is more difficult than I thought it would be. It is likely the chemo I'll be going onto in a few weeks time will affect my fingers - they will probably go numb and I won't be able to spin well or knit fine things. So I am spinning up more yarn and then wondering what shawls to knit with it. As for commercial laceweight yarn, umm, well blush I have a fair bit of that too :-) I am torn - make the 10 from 10 in my own handspun or make them out of a mix of my yarn and commercial stuff? Well see how we go. In the meantime, my queue is getting longer and longer, mostly so that I can find stuff again fairly easily.

I have a few new FOs to show off too, though I need good pics of them. For the first time in about two years, I did NOT knit a pair of socks in a month. Nowhere near! But I am not too fussed - two shawls, a pair of slippers, two hats... that is surely enough knitting!

My favourite sort of nut likes to sleep on the bed.

Look at that fat belly! Trying to get weight off the cats is like finding hen's teeth. They are clinging ferociously to their fat.

Look at that little bit of fang showing itself in an otherwise happy face.

Look at the bit of fur stuck in that back claw! The Nut moults all year round. Nonstop. 24/7/365. At least I've pretty much stopped moulting too - only got a bit of fuzz left now!



  1. Now I am humming Knitty the bush kangaroo!! I love your kitty cat pictures: the little fang, the little tuft, the big belly!!!

  2. Glad it made it safely. Not sure how it will do in a house full of kitties that shed ...

  3. Nutmeg makes me think of our lost tabby. She is lovely.
