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

If I were the knit-blog queen...
If I were the knit-blog queen, I could say:

It's been 3,834 days since my last haircut.


But I'm not counting little trims to keep the bottom nice and healthy. Which my mum used to always do for me, but last time was done by myself, resulting in a rather crooked edge which the lovely Cynthy fixed up for me.

One other time, my workmate Nada taped a length of sticky tape along the ratty bits at the bottom and used it to keep her cut straight, as she trimmed the festy bits off with the lovely sharp office scissors. I worried for my shirt at the time. These days I'd probably worry more about my butt. And yes, the ends tickle me when I ditch my clothes. Funny!

Ooops, I've been sprung by the blog-queen herself! *blushes furiously* I'm sooooo busted. ROTFL

Yo Mon

Love yer new site colours. Never, ever cut that hair. It's gorgeous!
November 15, 2004   03:44 PM PST
Holy Jesus on a bicycle! That's cool. I never had the discipline to grow it out. I get scissors-happy.

Hehe, it tickles yer bottom.

What do you mean "if"? You (and M-H, of course) ARE the knitblog queens.

I agree with the blue-on-blue comment, a bit tricky to read. Love the leopard, though! He's been the wallpaper on my work computer at one time.

true... I might have to twiddle some of the default colours. That'll learn me for being lazy and downloading a ready-made template! blerk.

Sorry. Meant to say that I like the new look. The only comment I might humbly make is that some may find the blue on blue a little hard to read.

I think your hair looks better than the knit blog queen's.

Have you checked out the Christmas Crap-Along comments on the Knitting Curmudgeon's site? Hilarious.
