I can so knit JUMPERS
I am in LERVE with this little old jumper here (you say sweater, I say jumper, let's call the whole thing off).
Comparing knitting and cleaning one last time - for even thinking 'knitting' and 'cleaning' in the same moment is an abomination, except of course when one is making an excellent point - the excellent point being that - one would NEVER scatter the dust from a dust pan just so that one could clean it up again better next time.
This little jumper made from delectable Jo Sharp Aran with a splash of Debbie Bliss orange is like sucking on Swiss chocolate, piece by sumptuous piece.
1. One is knitting from the top down rather from the bottom up as per the pattern.
2. One is a hopeless counter, adder and multiplier even when one is not working back to front and upside down.
3. One is not as practiced at judging one's own body size as one is at judging the size of a tea pot.
BUT does one care? Nooooo. One does not. One is almost looking for more reasons to make it last.
Now for something completely different (well not COMPLETELY different)...
Next time you are in New Town, Sydney - A Coffee and a Yarn, 413 King Street - is a must visit if for nothing else except this mad MAD installation.
And then there is this beautiful woman to take care of all you woolly caffeine needs.
And yes that is "Turkish Delight" from Wild Tea Cosies sitting on the table there.
Oi loike that too.
