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.
