  Mmm, wrap it, wrap it real good
Hooray! I have finished the wrap and I love love it. Not that I have sewn ends in, or anything that final, but it is done. Never have I knit so much garter stitch. Never would I have known how effective wrapping oneself in nothing but knit knit knit could be! I am actually going to photograph my actual self tomorrow wearing said wrap. Watch out.

Wowsers trousers, I won something! Check out Katt's blog. I won something and I am so excited, I just can't hide it! Now I need to work on my sock skills and make myself something so beautiful, so impressive and so wonderful I will be proud to show you all.

On another note, I went to the library today and got four knitting books, including one about history which is fascinating, and a May Gibbs book, which you could only inflict upon those under 5 (thankfully I have one of those) and another which has pics of patterns, which will help me choose the next MIL scarf. I am contemplating taking knitting on the plane on Thursday, although us Tasmanians have been known to create a rucus on aircraft. Whaddayareckon? Have any of you flown domestically, needles in hand? Photos tomorrow, I promise!

On yet another note, we went to check out the Graeme Base exhibition today, which was oh so good, especially for us grown ups. What a clever man. He draws something, and then uses tracing paper in order to redraw and make minor modifications and then repeats, repeats, repeats until he has what he wants. Perhaps I could learn something from Mr. Base. No one, nowhere ever creates something perfect the first time around, do they? Create, reflect, refine and recreate.

Cant wait to see piccies of the wrap!

I really hope you like the yarn when you get it. There are some lovely free sock patterns out there online I know I have picked up a few that I want to try.

I love your Devo title for your post today!! I spend happy hours thinking of punny titles for my blog. I have no life!!! I want to see the wrap too!!
The Libraray does have a few knitting book gems, but NOT ENOUGH!!! I ahve A Gathering of Lace at the moment!!!
 
Can't wait to see the wrap, and well done on winning the competition over at Katts blog. In case you want to give them a try here is the link for the 8ply socks I use:

I don't know about knitting on the plane, as far as I know needles are still banned, might pay to check first, you don't want to have your knitting taken off you.
 
Glad to see you are as excited as I am about our big win!
Love your blog by the way.

A friend of our's runs security at Coolangatta airport and she says NO to needles. They can do alot of damage apparently. Yea, but nothing compared to the damage a disgruntled knitter can cause!!
