Well it seems I have done it again... what you ask?
Well I've missed the big Knitta Please Event at the National Gallery of Australia [in Canberra]
seems I was too busy living too hectic a life here... then I found out I not only missed the event in blogland but even in the real... it's all over, as it was on the 5th - 12th but don't let my slacko-ness stop you from popping over & having a look... it's amazing & I'm thinking my letterbox, even some of my palms could do with a little wrapping woolly goodness in this cold weather... so as soon as I send off my Coral Reef I'm into making some wraps for my place...
Grrl+Dog was at the forefront of it all with her Guerilla Knitting... check out her place in the blogsphere... She has another great knitting event coming up too so do check it out...
Here are what other's have to show...
I believe a lot of the Fun knitters are doing Sturt Winter School in Mittagong - a weeks classes with Loani Prior having a great time I hope... great work folks & to the folks from all over the world that contributed to Knitta Please...

Life is still throwing me many curly, curvy balls.
My Mum is still in hospital - improving slowly - my hubby's Mum is not well either - winter-time is not good to either of them.

Thank you to those of you that have sent me caring emails, they are much appreciated.

I've been hooking away[helps with the stress levels] & am thrilled to say that I have finally worked out what I was doing wrong with my crocheted corkscrews.
For the life of me, I couldn't make them stay curled & they wanted to lie flat... I even tried putting some elasticised beading thread through them but they still looked a bit dicky.
Thanks to Quoin who put a video up on U-tube just to show me 'how', so after looking at it several[many, many] times I got to see what I was doing wrong... I know I'm a bit slow but I did get it all on my own "eventually". I've now got my crocheted corkscrews sorted, so am now re-doing them on my new piece of Hyperbolic Coral Reef that I've been working on... I know I'm being pedantic but that's OK with me... ha ha

Angel Message... Say 'Thank You' promptly & open-heartedly.
Enjoy the warmth of Love offered to You.
