When you know you take your football too seriously.

What is Jason doing tonight you might ask?

Why he is making banners for the boys to run through for the grand final on Saturday.

A Geelong for Duncan and a seperate Geelong one for Rohan. Bevan has agreed to be the token Port Power player and run through the Port banner although rest assured that he will be in full Cats colours.

As you can see these are no two-bob banners. They are the real deal made with sturdy wood and crepe paper. The boys will decorate them tomorrow.

Despite the making of a Port banner and the fact that I don't really follow anyone, let me say....


No really I mean it, the boys and Jason are all supporters and I really want the Cats to win for them.....

Green Gables is done!

Made in Knit Picks Shine Worsted (Watermelon) on 4mm needles. No modifications except for 2x2 rib instead of 1x1. I really like this! It fits well and the yarn feels lovely on. Apart from the hours and hours of boring stockingette I throughly recommend it.

Don't have a cow Mum!

I love the school holidays!

I got this made yesterday - my first nappy bag for sale on the open market! I have to admit that the irony of a cow nappy bag aimed at the MCN market was not lost on me. I don't know about the rest of you, but there was many times breastfeeding that I fely just like a cow! Especially given that my Medela mini-electric used to moo...

It comes with either a matching PUL wetbag (large enough for two nappies) or a matching change pad. If you want it click here!

In case you are interested....

Semi custom knitting or nappy bag up for auction now!

How to save a marriage through yarn...

The cricket sweater is done!

Jason says he likes it which I guess what counts. Well actually, he would be unlikely to say he didn't given the fuss he made about getting it. As cricket sweaters go I am fairly happy with it.

After much nagging and subtle hints.

Well subtle and not so subtle hints, I have started a new cricket sweater for Jason. I started one for him back when we first started dating and never finished it. Foolishly I was attempting it in 8ply and it was taking forever. This one is far more sensibly being done in 12 ply Bendigo Woolen Mills Classic.

My plan is to have it done for the first round the weekend after the grand final. we shall see how that goes....

At last something is finished!

I whipped this little vest up mainly to use some Fibreworks yarn I bought at the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show. One of those stupid "isn't that cute" purchases that had no thought behind it like "what will I do with 300g of 12 ply?" Thankfully someone alerted me to this pattern on Woolaholics (thanks Bec) and there was more than enough yarn for it. The pattern actually called for 400g for the size 4 but I had leftovers from 300. Go figure! My only problem was the insane amount of blue dye that the wool shed. I looked like a damn smurf!

Duncan appears to have claimed it for the time being but I suspect that Rohan will have it soon enough.

Now onto finishing Green Gables and starting Jason's cricket vest. Yes I finally relented!
