Sponsor my private revolution:

What am I selling on Ebay today?

Let the Revolution begin...
*You can be any age to join the knitting revolution. It's not just grannies any more.
*To join, just grab the nearest pointy things, and tie them to the nearest string-like substance. Wave them enthusiastically in the air, yelling passionate cries such as "och aye the noo!"
*The revolution requires that you supply your own weapons. Er, needles. *Knitting can be sexy. Sure, it can. Go to knitty and be inspired!
*Knit in public, and if anyone looks at you funny, you've always got a sharp metal thing handy with which to poke their soft bits.
*Get all knitting-zen on people. Then when you really let your hair down, you can get away with it, because you're "that nice person, who knits". *insert evil laugh here*
*Oh, yeah, almost forgot. The revolution will not be televised. Or... something like that.

I moved to Canberra last November, and am now involved in the best Canberra knitting group! ... so any locals or visitors interested, go on over to Canberra Stich N Bitch yahoo group and join us in our dark endeavours! I mean, creative meeting of minds... er, yeah. Something like that. We meet at Starbucks in Civic on the first Thursday evening of every month, and the third Sunday of the month at 2pm. Come along! If you feel shy, feel free to post online first, or email someone to ask a few questions. :):):) If you want, use the contact button and I'll give you my details so we can get in touch. Always happy to get the interesting people of Canberra out of the woodwork... I know you're there, ya just hard to find sometimes *chuckle*

Sydney Knitting Adventures continue at "my" previous knitting group in Newtown: Meet up for coffee, cake, and knitting adventures galore at Barmuda Cafe, Australia Street Newtown. It's opposite the police station, and across the intersection from Newtown Train Station.

See the SSK Website for details :D

You, and this many other people with a cramp in their forefinger:

Interesting in knitting, and what other knitters are doing? Or are you just bored, or farting off at work while the boss ain't watching? Well then, I have just the thing to keep you busy for hours on end... go exploring the wonderful world of knitting blogs. Can you believe there's so many of us?

Well, my revolutionary little chickens, don't you just hate it when real life interferes with your blogging mojo?

But, as you can see, I've been having fun. Eeeevil fun. Yes, I fit ALL of my hair into two paper demon-horns. And yeeeeessss, fearless question-popping little mortal, I made them my devilish self.

naughty or nice??? (maybe I should do a poll)
SUMS (my choir) had the annual costume ball, and the theme was "Underworld". It were grrreat! If you want to see more pics, go to this very photo-heavy site (apologies to those poor suckers still on dialup, like me) and check it out. Click on Champagne Club, and then the three links which say SUMS Ball. I took pictures of just about everything that moved, and then some.

Knittingwise, I've nearly finished my stripy knee sock, and will do a photo in the next day or two. Promise. Right after I finish torturing my latest bunch of damned souls. Mwahaha!

monicaaaaa! I need help with toe up knitting. I learned out to use dpn's and I'm very happy, and I bought a book on socks.

SILLY ME. they assume people want to NOT try their socks on for size...and I can't figure out how to start the toe. I can figure out the backwards pattern reading, but it's the TOES! the TOES i can't figure out how to start!
