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.

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!!
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.
