On a Boat!

Last night was Johnny Rock’s now-annual Halloween on a Boat! party.  In the hours before we docked, Johnny announced the gig had actually sold out, which deserves a round of applausein itself.  Expectations were suitably high, and absolutely smashed. There was DJ’s on the first floor, and bands on the upper-deck, which made for plenty […]

The Neil’s Pyjamas

I promised Neil a pair of pyjama pants quite a long time ago.  I think I even made some, but I never gave them to him.  Then, when I was shopping for gingham, the cotton flannel was pointed out to me.  Now, to be fair, I did need some — around half a metre or […]

Impromptu T-Shirt Refashion

I have a lot of band T-shirts, mainly because I’ve seen a lot of bands.  I don’t wear them very often for a variety of reasons, however I could never, ever part with them.  There’s too many stories in there to just leave them at the op-shop. Other than the big reason why I don’t […]

DIY Twiggy and Revolting

A Ballerina in My Own Bedroom

These were so much fun.  After dyeing the yarn with Queen’s Food Colouring (remember these?) I decided I needed a sweet, one-ball-o’-yarn project to display the fun.  And what’s better than slippers?  (Nothing, quite frankly, I love anything vaguely related to pyjamas). They are meant to be worn while you turn clumsy pirouettes in front […]

And That is That!

I have been cranking out the FO’s lately, guys.  I think I almost gave my dad a heart attack when I said that I only had one project on the needles at the moment, which are the Subconcious tights (ignore the Curly Curler’s, they will never be finished).  These are mostly small projects, which is […]
