If I’m weird around you,
it’s because I’m comfortable
Ok friends....I’ve finally got my act together today, time to blog!! Lol Surely I don’t need to bang on any more about the weather and how hot it is....but I do. We had such a hot day yesterday that it knocked our socks off, I had a good old granny nap to cope with it all. I thought I’d phone up Heather the feather to see if she’d like to come and have a cuppa with me, only to discover she’d also had a granny nap too.
Whatever the weather, it is never too hot to drink cuppa’s or knit. lol So that’s what we did...an afternoon of cuppa’s and knitting.
I’ve been invited to put my craft work in the local library as part of a craft display for the month of March, and I’m stoked!! I have started off with some knitted items. Well strike me down...you guys didn’t see that coming hey? lol
How do you like these groovy little booties? In typical Anita style....there is no ribbon threaded through them yet, but I do have some.
Some cute knitted red slippers from one of the library books I have taken home with me. I love the way they are fitted
I don’t know about you guys but I reckon we often are so busy making things for everyone else that we actually forget to spoil ourselves. So I have decided to make a start on a knitted tunic for myself. The original pattern is for short sleeves and I am going to add long sleeves to my finished item. Click here to see the tunic. For the pattern, click here.
I’m up to a bit of skull duggery with this stitchery, so I can’t really go into detail yet. All I can say is that I’m so flippin’ excited about the whole thing. I sound crazy I know, but who is surprised about that from me?? lol
Oh man, how awesome is this little gem of a book! I found this one at the local library while teasing the staff to bits. Don’t feel sorry for them either....I think deep down they love getting hassled! I know I love hassling them. Lol This book has heaps of snazzy projects in it, and the colours are out of this world. Thank goodness for libraries!!!!
And no...... before you all jump to conclusions...this is not another addition to the stash, it was a mysterious discovery. I don’t know how it managed to come home with me.....true story. Phfff! Lol Since it’s here, it can join my wool stash anyway.
I’m beginning to think everyone who lives at my house are all slightly sketchy in character and mind. I’ve got a house full of boys who are whacky, offbeat, zany and odd, the woman in the house is slightly bent in the mind and the animals are cray cray (crazy) as well.
Is that really how a normal dog lays in the morning sun?
Well I have to be honest....I wouldn’t have it any other way. When the whole world outside can be challenging, there’s a whole lot of crazy going on in this home. I hope your home is full of love and fun, and the scary thing is....it’s not hard to do. Stay groovy gals, have a great week and round you all up next week.
