big issues with big knitting

Astonishingly, there seems to be some people out there with big issues about knitting to the point they went out to vandalise and destroy the knitted bridge in the middle of last night. It must of been a heart breaking sight this morning for all those involved in such a large project, after speaking to one of the organisers today I was told it would of been a team of people who went about sabotaging it last night. I mean, why?!!

I would very much like a copy of Milk magazine and one of those cute knitted house pillows! Can anyone recommend where I could purchase Milk online, preferably with Paypal payment options? Merci xx

bonjour monsieur

Little Monsieur is my third attempt at amigurumi, I've used Jess's panda pattern as a base and added some French chic for Monsieur's outfit. Now I must make a Mademoiselle!

crocheted or knitted?

I'm relatively new to both camps, so I'm left to intrigue if the lampshades found at Seven Seeds cafe have been crocheted or knitted? Either way, I imagine big needles or hooks were involved!

brooke loves flowers

Nothing could suit Brooke's personality more than Victoria's new 'say it with flowers' necklace. Brooke sent me this photo on the weekend, her necklace filled with flowers that the children she looks after at childcare picked just for her. Too sweet!!

super amazing misako mimoko

I always swoon over Misako Mimoko's colourful textile creations and now I'm left completely smitten by her amazing poster design skills. If only I lived in Barcelona, I would sign up for her upcoming softies workshop in a heartbeat!

homemade recycled goodness

Dottie Angel
has tempted me to consider her challenge in the new year, although fearing I may fail I do think it's a great 2010 goal I should put on the top of my list!

The above beautiful images are from Dottie' Angel Etsy store, lots of recycled homemade goodness there, with a shop update expected this Friday.

I'm in love with all the goodies at Castle and Things. I've particularly got my eye on some of those bed linens!

the big knit

I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the bridge that I walk across on my bunny-spotting walk to work is going to be slowly transformed into a colourful, giant knitted installation during the Big West Festival starting in mid November.

I hope to take lots of photos during the transformation to share its daily progress. You can also keep track of the process by following The Big Knit blog.

postcards from sunday

My Sunday (and week) has been filled with entertaining family visiting from interstate. Visits to the Camberwell Market, Chapel Street Bazaar and the Auction Rooms cafe have filled our Sunday and luckily we have had some fantastic warm weather to share our Melbourne beauty!
