So for those who aren't in Melbourne, today is Cup Day. The day off for the "race that stops a nation". Don't know about that, but I am grateful for the day off work today, I will admit.
(Although I would rather it not be at the expense of animals and rich men making money off them (and punters), but that is another much longer discussion)
Anyway, I have some finished objects to share!
I made a felted plant mat out of my bargain-but-itchy-as-hell-yet-too-beautiful-to-throw-away yarn
It's so sweet, sitting under my white frilly cyclamen like a little lake. I have plan to make some more, maybe stripe them using up other felting wool?
I also finished another Springtime beret, this time for my girl. She loved her cousin's one so much she requested one of her own. It's a completely different hat in a sturdier yarn. I do like the mohair version, I have to admit, but Lily is super happy with her new red beret so everyone wins!
Oh, and this weekend I went into 3RRR and chatted with the Radio Marinara crew about roller derby!
What's that, you say? Marine-life and derby have a connection?! Well, it was very tenuous, but yes; yes they do! (Hint = our league is the "South Sea" Roller Derby league)
It was such a blast, and Bron & Angeline were so delightful to chat with. You can listen here if you would like to,
