Laugh? I nearly died!

On Sunday, my fabulous sister who shares my wicked sense of humour, gave me a copy of 'The Dictionary of Kitschy Stitches" by Stitchy McYarnpants. I love a good laugh. But this book was so funny that I couldn't stop laughing to breath. Seriously. I could only read a couple of pages at a time for fear that I would die. My favourite page is below (You may need to click to view text).

There's another one with a rug knitted to appear like a life-size clown - the caption implying that the boy beneath the rug was no longer frightened of clowns having killed and skinned his own... this one is pertinent given my darling husband has a phobia of clowns.

You must buy it. Buy it now.

Online Dating

I find it interesting that my blog is Rated G. Especially as during the week my lovely 3 year old learnt to use the F word - in context. We were at home, she 'not feelin da best', me trying to get excited about doing the Dora the Explorer puzzle for the 50th time, when the phone rang. I sighed (I hate the phone). Lily said ' Oh F**k Off'. I don't think I can blame that one on childcare...

Anyhoo, just to catch you up on a couple of little things I did during my blogging haitus...

This for my friend battling brain cancer. Warning: Strong Language! Ironically, the strong language won't affect my G rating because its a picture!!

Fuck Cancer

And this for my friends D and P's daughter Ruby (a gorgeous name for a gorgeous child)


This yarn is one of Spidey's. I notice she's doing some socks in the same yarn - is it bad that I love a sock? Do you think if I steal it she will notice?

And finally, a little hat that I whipped up for Lil. I did it on double pointeds - a first for me. Taph, you'd be proud. I made it with little holes for her piggy tails. I got sick her looking like she had growths coming out of her head in all her hats because of the unsightly bumps cause by the pigtails. Problem solved. Although, I seemed unable to estimate the length of her head, and its a bit short. Never mind.


Anyhoo, best be off. I might see some of you tonight at Knit1Blog1 opening - but I will have child in tow so I don't know how long I'll stay.

This will explain everything...

Bub 2

I'm 14 weeks pregnant, but i
ts third time lucky with this little monkey... two little stumbles in the road which means I've actually been pregnant for 8 of the last 11 months... no wonder I'm tired! Anyhoo. I've not been doing much beyond working and sleeping recently, but hopefully things will return to normal shortly. I'm already doing better - its 9.30 and I'm still awake!!
