Pterodactyls and Sail Boats

Another job crossed off the list. I have done some more singlets in size 0 which is a popular size. When I was having babies it was all pastels, sailboats and 3ply wool. Now people like bright and conversational.

When I was 5, I had NO idea what a Pterodactyl was....come to think of it, I don't think I even knew what a generic dinosaur was. But I did know about Flowerpot Men and Big Bird (the yellow talking kind as opposed to the Pterodactyl)

I have a knitting project I really want to do but I have told myself I must finish off a couple of jobs before I can begin it. So the next thing on the finish list is a boys jumper that I put away last winter having completed the front and back. I was knitting it for the charity that was taking jumpers to an icy Tundra somewhere but the charity folded. Luckily I know a beautiful 10 yr old Tasmanian boy whom I think will love it and find it useful.


  1. Tanya, these are really nice, I must tuck this idea at the back of my mind.

    I was just reading about how you write on your fridge and it makes so much sense! I am an inveterate list-maker and think I will go and play on the fridge in a moment.

  2. Thanks Rose, nice to see you. A little tip with the neck embroidery....I do it a loose zig-zag decorative stitch so that it can stretch over babies head without being restrictive or breaking the threads.
    I don't know where I would be without my fridge lists! Next weekend we are so committed socially that it really helps to keep it on the fridge, and because I'm going to it all the time, there really is no excuse for forgetting anything!
