Yoo Hoo! Over here!!

So, my good craftin' buddy Sadie and Lance, has noticed that I have not updated my blog in a while so here I am posting!!

And the reason for my silence? I have been experiencing some technical difficulties, I can't remember how to download photos from my camera to my computer so I am currently holding alot of piccies of craft waiting to be posted. That is my story, and I am sticking to it!

In the mean time, I remembered that I always carry a project to work, in case the mood strikes me and I have to knit, or in case I want to impress that cute boy on the train with my crafting. Ok, that has never happened, the seeing a cute guy on the train bit, I usually see them on the platform and then lose them when we get on the train (gee, I sound like a scary stalker now!).

Anywho, here is a photo of my travel project. I am knitting the Umbilical cord hat from the first S'n"B book in the varigated Merino Bambino yarn that I bought from Spotlight B.B (before boycott). Kind of cute huh! Not sure who it is for yet, but will keep you posted.

Speaking of the Boycott, Shazmina's Mum is in agreement (right on sista!) she actually thinks it is "disgusting". She is becoming a political activist in her later years, having told Shazmina's Dad her views on WorkChoices (what choice?) legislation and Australia's involvement in Iraq. Lets just say you should never talk about politics or religion in the Bendi family! :)

So what is Shazmina working on now, I hear you say?? Well as she has always wanted to be a pirate, (arrrggghhh me hearty, raise the anchor and lets be off!) she is knitting a pirate jumper. Captain Jack Sparrow eat your heart out! Having been taught how to adjust a pattern for different yarn by the Yarn goddess at Yarns on Line, she has hit a minor obstacle (adjusting the intarsia pattern) which has slowed down production. But I will finish it, oh yes I will! I want to wear it during my trip to Melbourne to visit the cool kids, Sadie and Lance.

Will keep you updated on my pirate progress, and I will post again when I have the camera thing-a-ma-jiggy worked out!!

Viva la Craft! Shazmina

COOL! I am impressed, knitting in the round, it took me ages to conquer my fear of circular needles. And way to go Mrs Bendid (that's your Mum), all political and stuff.

Wow, the hat looks great. Love that veriegated merino bambino! What size circulars are you doing it on? (or I could just check the pattern...)
