12.30am today. Sitting on a couch at Gloria Jean's in North Sydney, our heroine (Shazmina Bendi) pulls out her knitting (current project a baby related surpirse!). She ponders life and how cute that boy is over the other side of the room. She puts on glasses and realises that he is not cute at all, so she takes them off and goes back to believing that there are attractive men in North Sydney.
She waits patiently for the arrival of her good crafting buddy, Al.
SB: Hey you are finally here! (Here being GJ's in N Sydney)
Al: Yeah just managed to get out. Where is your show & tell?
SB: Ok, here it is (with flourish, pull item from sportsgirl bag). But I need a favour, can you try on so I can take a photo for my blog?
Al: Sure ( Takes off scarf and puts on said item). The colour is great and it fits pretty well (over a collared work shirt).
SB: Well that's good, because I knit it for you.
Al: YOU WHAT?? OMG SHAZMINA IT'S GREAT! (continues swooning).
Quick Knit jacket, Jo Sharp Knit 3
Lambs pride Worsted, Chianti
And that my friends, is pretty much what happened at lunch today.
ps. I should also state, that I am not a saint. The reason I knitted the above jacket for Al, is as a return gift for a Jumper (Jo Sharp Knit 2) that she gave me.
