That's egg on your face!

Or, on your shirt. I bought this brooch the other week from the local markets which I can't help think is the funniest thing ever.

Who says you shouldn't play with your food eh?

On another note, look what I designed and made! Designed after having about 3hours sleep (thanks a lot, cat) and needing to quickly make a neckwarmer for a friend in an exchange. The colour is absolutely not my colour, but given that the whole shebang is just 2x2 rib with twisted rib, I think it looks quite striking.

I reckon the buttonholes need revision, but given that I'm definitely making a second version of this (would I be the only nutter wanting this recipe?), that shouldn't be a problem.

It has occured to me that I haven't taken pics of the handspun I've been producing lately. So here is just a bunch of photos of yarn. Tasty, delicious yarn!

I like the neckwarmer! The stich does look really neat. Actually, I thought it was crochet for a moment and was kind of confused.

Ah,Sally, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that neck-warmer... Do you think you can possibly make me one??? Please, pretty please!!! I'll pay what you want for it, of course. Do you have a PayPal account?
It's just Purrfect for my always-cold-have-to-wear-a-scarf neck!
And you flicker photos are superb!!
I esp. love the purple yarn in the barbie!
I'm one of those weird people who do love purple as a wearable colour. :)
Cheers and let me know soon if you can make that neck-warmer for me. It would sure come in handy right now.
