More FO's

After knitting I don't know how many hearts for World Aids Day, I felt it was time for something a little less ... twee.

One (I think) anatomically correct heart.  Why?  Just because.

I've also finished a top-down sleeveless cardi (minus buttons for now - I have some, I just hate sewing them on.)  My photos of the cardi suck, but I'm reeeeeeallllly pleased with how it turned out.  I changed the sleeve edges slightly.  The pattern tells you to just cast them off when you reach them, but I put the stitches on holders instead, then came back & worked the same garter st border as for the bottom edge.

Lower right detail.
My next project?  I'm working on a skirt!  You can see it in progress hiding behind the heart.  It's knitted on the bias, so hopefully it won't hold the shape of my rear end after I've been sitting for a bit!!

The Lismore Yarn Guerillas strike again!

Before the sun was up, the Lismore Yarn Guerillas were up & painting the town red ... with yarn.

Today (the 1st of December) is World Aids Day & to help bring awareness & reduce stigmas of Aids & HIV.  We were lucky enough to be the recipients of some grant money! So with lots of plotting, planning & secretive giggling we formulated a plan.

Red is the colour of the Aids/HIV awareness ribbon, so red it would be!

We even made it onto the local NBN 6 o'clock news!  It should be available to view online, but I'm unsure how to find it.  If you do manage to find it, try & find the sleep-deprived deliriously daft cheerleader!
(omg it's me - cringe)
