I've been meaning to try this for awhile... knitting 2 balls of 8 ply together to make a soaker or shorties or something. It's interesting the way the wools wind together, though I'm not really sure I like the two colours that way. It's kind of harsh the way they blob against each other.
But wow it's fast to knit! gotta love finishing something in half the time LOL.
I might try it with some white and varigated wool, or some complementary colours rather than contrasting ones...it may be more visually appealing:P
Now I have to decide if I want to keep knitting this or wait until I get colours I like more....but L does badly need longies for nights..so maybe I'll just see how fast I can knit some lol

ok so not technically crafty, and not technically made by me (haha) but still tasty. Caitlyn and Dad (Pa) made these friands (oops I just typed friends LOL) today. They are so bad for you (you would not believe the amount of butter in those little critters) but they taste sooo good. They made mixed berry ones and almond ones.
Caitlyn wore her new cook outfit that I bought for some crazy cheap price when they were having a sale at kmart a couple of weeks ago. I think it's cute! but it is so cheaply made it just annoys me that they can sell stuff like that which will quite literally fall apart after not very long. Maybe I will design and make some myself...and maybe even sell them if they turn out. I definitely think it's a good idea to be selling some things that aren't just for the nappy-wearing.

I found these canvas baskets at kmart and thought they were perfect for putting nappies in. Only trouble is how many of them I would actually need to fit all the nappies in (oops).
They fit perfectly under the change table too.... which is really cool.
I have had time to do a few silly things this morning while L has been having a sleep. I am sooo not used to having time to myself, it's very odd.

I have a couple of projects to work on. I bought this fabric a couple of weeks ago and haven't gotten any further. argh! lol.
I am going to make another wrap sling so that I can actually wash my hug-a-bub. I am that attached to it that I am scared to wash it in case I need it while it's drying LOL.
So it will be interesting. I searched all over spotlight to try and find a suitable fabric but couldn't really find any, so I'm just going to try this and see what happens. The green fabric may not have been such a good idea because it's been shedding all over everything already haha.

After being inspired by the lovely Bec and her blog, I've decided to create a public blog for all my crafty related things. I have a personal online journal, but most of it is private and I'd rather keep it that way... but at the same time I wanted to share things as well, so here I am. (nevermind that I kinda really hate the whole blogger thing (a LJ girl from way back, so maybe just biased)...it seems to be what most people are using in my circles at the moment.
My first post here is the rainbow shorties (longies) that I made for lachie recently. The wool is some that I had for probably over a year, and I could never bring myself to use it because I loved the colours so much and didn't want to waste it. I just hope you can't see my crappy knitting in these photos ;)
