Ok, so what do you do when you leave your crochet hook, yarn and crochet flowers in the car (from collecting school children and getting a few dc's done in the few minutes between arriving at school and the bell), the whole soccer training rush, then home again, and hubbie takes that car to his own soccer game, and you sit down to watch the 7pm ABC news, which you NEVER get time to sit down to watch, but today you DO make time to watch it, because you want to witness this historic day in Australian Politics, and realise that it actually is true and has happened, and see where our new leader plans to take us, and your hands are empty - uh-oh, you have left your current crochet project in the car ! ! ! !
Well, what do you do?? I will tell you what you do, you get another hook and yarn and you start a new project is what you do. Well that is what I do, cause I can't just sit in front of tv, with my hands not moving, however, I felt it was too important a bulletin to be washing up in the kitchen with my head crinked over my left shoulder to 'squizz' bits of the news either.
I then even indulged myself to continue to sit in front of the tv to then watch the 7.30 report.
Below is the result of the last hour.
Canberra isn't the only place that has been busy today.
Mine is going to hopefully look like this when finished, and if you prefer a knitted version, you can make one like this, but wait, there is more, if you prefer the fabric version, here is the place you need to be.
I am using an 8 ply yarn, and 4mm hook. I cast on 94 chain which measured 57.5cms long (22.5 inches).
I would like to say thank you to Michelle, Leonie and Kirsty for their patterns, and sharing on their blogs to the rest of the community.
As for what's happening in Canberra, I will leave that to those that know what they are talking about.
