Sleep -

My goal, when I got home, was to stay awake until 9pm. I have already failed. Twice.

So I thought I would come and show you things that I haven't made.

And another graffiti guy. Someone keeps coming along and spray painting a penis on its face. Some one else comes back and colours the face in yellow again. You can see where it is yellower. I don't know who the guy on the left is. I've not seen anyone like him. He looks a little like how I hope not to feel in the morning.

Screw it, I might just give up, go to bed and hope for the best.

(had a little yarn accident this afternoon).

Gifts from friends -

First, congratulations are in order for an intrepid knitter who has done good work this day.

A gift for the third drawer down in the kitchen:

And this, I hope, will soon be a gift for friends. It is a little too big for their son yet, but kids grow, I've seen them doing it, it is a little freaky.

At the moment I am so so stressed and deliriously happy. Perhaps time for bed?

Gifts from friends, and my first proper attempt at blocking -

Hudaks Bakery Orange Loaf. The most delicious bread in the world. I would like to pretend that it lasted me for three breakfasts.

Just before these friends arrived for dinner I was standing staring in the top draw wondering where the h. e. double hockeysticks all the spoons had gone. I was delighted when presented with:

I finally finished Madli's shawl, finally cleaned the soaking bucket and finally had my first real attempt at blocking. I initially fell in love with it when I saw a no-nupps version on All Tangled Up.

Stretching lace is fun. I am thinking about blocking wires, they would make the edges look o! so lovely.

Gifts from friends -

A sweet little blue egg.

A delicious supper which also involved field mushrooms from Ceres.

I finished knitting the baby kimono. Let's not talk about row gauge issues, or my lumpy garter stitch. Or seaming.
